About Us

In early 2020, the City of Quincy acquired the building located at 180 Old Colony Avenue from Eastern Nazarene College and began collaborating with Wessling Architects on extensive renovation plans to create a unique new school for students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8.

The Dr. Rick DeCristofaro Learning Center and its educational program is designed for students who need significant support in communication, academics, and social/emotional development in small specialized classrooms.

We are pleased to announce that we have welcomed students and staff from our CARES programs at the state-of-the-art Rick DeCristofaro Learning Center (RDLC) for the 2024 summer program. Students in the integrated Pre-Kindergarten program who previously attended Amelio Della Chiesa or Point Webster will transition to the RDLC for the fall of 2024.
