This offers a college experience to individuals with intellectual disabilities that might otherwise not experience a college life. ($8000/per semester)

Students enrolled will be working on social, community living, vocational, and academic goals.

Post-secondary programs for students with disabilities are increasingly getting national support.

Important entry-level skills: Classroom behavior, social responsiveness, elementary reading and writing skills, following a written/graphic schedule, telling time/being on time, following directions.
