The Bancroft School Voorhees Pediatric Facility
A unique collaboration between two leading organizations – Bancroft and Voorhees Pediatric Facility – The Bancroft School at Voorhees Pediatric Facility is the first New Jersey Department of Education-approved private school within a pediatric specialized-care facility. Founded in 1995, this pioneering program opens a whole new world to children who require continuous, skilled, high-level nursing care.
Bancroft offers a pioneering program for children who are medically fragile. This program enables Bancroft to meet students where they are through innovative technologies and compassion.
Through this unique partnership, students ages 3 to 21 who are medically fragile and/or technology-dependent, have the opportunity to attend school in comfortable medically equipped and technology-enriched classrooms.
