  • Each student will take three courses per semester on technology, monitoring income and expenditure, cooking, hygiene, social skills, safety measures, self-advocacy, and self-awareness among others;
  • Students are encouraged to monitor their progress, make choices about classes and on-campus activities, and interact with faculty and staff to meet their needs;
  • Students are encouraged to join clubs and teams on campus.
