High School

 

 

Our High School “Life Learning Program” was created with one main goal in mind – INDEPENDENCE!!! Independence means different things for different students: For some, independence means obtaining a job and living independently. For others, independence means being able to complete daily activities such as bathing and preparing food without relying on someone else for assistance

Our vision for this program is to provide the necessary support for all of our students to meet this goal, This will be achieved in a variety of ways:

  •     Job skill training, both on-site and off-site
  •     Heavy focus on “soft skills” needed to function in a working environment:
  •     Self confidence
  •     Interpersonal communication
  •     Dress and appearance
  •     Goal setting
  •     Problem Solving
  •     Self Advocacy
  •     Perspective-taking
  •     Focus on Independent Living:
  •     Food/Meal Prep
  •     Functional leisure activities
  •     Scheduling and time-management
  •     Forming and maintaining social relationships

Our brand new 2nd floor addition has:

  •     10 classrooms, capacity of 100 students
  •     A fully functional apartment, to be used  for practicing the essential skills needed for independence:
  •     Cooking and meal preparation
  •     Cleaning and organization
  •     Washing, folding, and sorting laundry
  •     3 additional therapy rooms for Speech and Occupational Therapy

We are currently accepting applications for 9th and 10th grade students only to be enrolled for the 2015-2016 school year.

We are not accepting/enrolling new students for the High School program prior to the next school year
