We offer an 11-month non-graded educational program to students ages 5 – 21 and a special education program for students in elementary school, grades K – 3. We also offer a specialty program for students with severe autism and communication deficits.

Using a multi-sensory approach to learning, our educational programs challenge our students to develop independence in various settings beyond the school including at home, on the job, or in the community.
