Peter Hall School welcomes students ages 4 to 21 who have intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorders or psychopathological disorders. Students may also have physical disabilities. Most of our students are referred to us by schoolboards in the Greater Montreal Area.

Interested parents are encouraged to contact us to schedule an appointment to visit the school. We will be happy to give you a private tour and explain our various educational programs and complementary services.

At the visit, you will receive an admissions package. Once we receive your completed application, we will contact you for an admission screening.

Peter Hall School is a private school that is subsidized by the ministère de l’Enseignement et de l’Éducation supérieure. This funding allows us to provide services at a cost that is comparable to the public sector. Parents are required to pay a yearly lunchtime supervision fee and a school material fee.

Parents must provide their child’s lunch and snacks. Parents may occasionally be asked to pay for special activities, such as field trips.

Students receive daily bus service to and from their home at no extra cost.
