Does your special needs high schooler desire a postsecondary experience on a college campus? These colleges offer an excellent opportunity to experience higher education and develop life skills.

Participants live on campus. Mentor Peers also assist the program. Some scholarships are available, too.

Those who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of postsecondary education (not an accredited college degree program). They will also receive an employment portfolio to take to potential employers.
