Mission Statement
Sunshine Cottage School for Deaf Children promotes early identification and intervention of hearing impairment, and provides learning in a rich auditory-oral environment so that children with hearing loss can develop to their maximum potential through listening, language and speech.

Core Beliefs
We believe that children who are hearing impaired can learn to listen and talk if early identification, amplification, and intervention take place.
We believe that all children can learn in a stimulating environment led and encouraged by educated, dedicated teaching staff.
We believe that optimal educational needs can be met for all Sunshine Cottage students through self-contained and mainstream classes.
We believe that the participation of parents and their partnership with the school are critical to the success of the child.

Educational Philosophy
Sunshine Cottage knows that children with hearing loss can be an active part of the hearing world. We teach children with mild to profound hearing loss to communicate naturally and effectively using intelligible speech and pleasant-sounding voices, without the use of sign language. From newborns through high school age, children thrive in a supportive educational environment with an excellent clinical and teaching staff and state-of-the-art technology.
Language acquisition, clear speaking skills, and the ability to learn to listen (using residual hearing and amplification) are education goals that span all subjects taught at Sunshine Cottage.
Sunshine Cottage is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, OPTIONschools International and is a TEA approved non-public school.
