About Us

  • Founded in 1867, the Alabama School for the Blind (ASB) provides traditional and non-traditional programs and educational experiences for children ages three to 21 who are blind or have low vision as residential or day students. ASB has won notable acclaim for both the academic and athletic ability of our students while independent living experiences and advanced use of assistive technology help build self-confidence. We also provide assistance to students with vision loss in public schools all across the state through the Alabama Instructional Resource Center for the Blind located on the ASB campus.
