Vocational Program

Our goal is for all students to become independent, productive, contributing members of their communities, to their fullest ability. Our program is designed to support students in achieving this goal.

Our staff is committed to working with teachers, staff, students, community members and families in making this a reality for each and every student.

We strive to expose students to several different learning opportunities and vocational placements to help them determine not only what they like and what they dislike, but also what they might be successful at. Depending on skill level and other criteria, students participate daily in a vocational activity.
