Our Self-Supported program offers a nurturing Christian Education to students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We arecurrently exploring options to expand our offerings to students who are in the peer group of Kindergarten-4th graders.This classroom will provide a space for growth in individual goals and objectives.
Focuses on Inclusion
One of the goals of the Self Supported Program is to provide mainstream learning experiences to our students where appropriate.Students may have the opportunity to join their peers in enrichment classes, lunch, recess, Chapel, and some classroom learning activities.
