Founded in 1854 as the Orphan's Home and Farm School by Rev. Dr. William Passavant, today Glade Run is a leading provider of educational, mental health, autism and unique therapeutic offerings to children, adults and families in home, community and school based settings. Glade Run operates St. Stephen's Academy, a licensed private alternative K-12 school with two locations. Glade Run is also home to the region's only Sensory Park and Playground, an outdoor playspace designed to meet the physical, sensory and socialization needs of children with autism and their families. Glade Run Adventures provides therapeutic equine, animal and horticulture offerings to the community, and Glade Run's historic Zelienople campus includes a number of venues for events and meetings.
