Overbrook School for the Blind has been educating students for 187 years, and we still love what we do! Founded in 1832, OSB serves approximately 200 students (ages 5 through 21) on campus. Our Early Intervention Outreach program (birth through age three) provides at-home guidance and care to the parents of 175 additional families. Rounding out its programmatic footprint, OSB's International Program reaches thousands of children and adults in Southeast Asia and China by training teachers and administrators on how to instruct additional teachers to work with the blind and the visually impaired.
