We accept students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin.

The goal of Sunshine Cottage is to provide children who are deaf or hard of hearing the auditory/oral foundation to become independent and active participants of the hearing world. These children utilize state-of-the-art hearing technology to develop listening and spoken language to communicate naturally and effectively without the use of sign language. We are a non-public, non-profit school for children who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as children with typical hearing. Throughout their Sunshine Cottage experience, all children enrolled in the day-school program benefit from the unique learning environment and strong support system.
Learning to listen using personal amplification and supplemental hearing technologies, and the acquisition of intelligible spoken language are goals that span all areas of the day-school program.
Families seeking admission for their child should call the school at (210) 824-0579 for information and to schedule an appointment. You may also email us and the appropriate person will contact you.
Admission for all children is dependent on diagnostic qualifications and requirements.
