The transition program focuses on developing post secondary goals for students. We want our students to experience more options once they graduate. Students learn the skills necessary for a successfull transition from high school to post-secondary educational enrollment and employment options for life as an adult. A Transition Plan is written for each student when they turn fourteen years old and continues until they graduate from high school. Starting the process early prepares students with disabilities to think about what they want to be able to do after high school graduation.
Students in all classes benefit from access to the resources of the web through our high speed internet network. Our computer lab provides students with the opportunity to learn and develop their computer skills on everything from office applications to still-image and video editing. Complementing these resources are extensive collections of print, audio, and video materials, as well as a large musical instrument collection that allows all students to experience hands-on exploration of the guitar, dulcimer, banjo, bass, autoharp, mandolin, and other stringed and percussion instruments from around the world.
Our grounds feature two and one-half acres of wooded lands highlighted by our nature center that is a Certified Wildlife Habitat, enclosed recreational areas including a student-designed and constructed miniature golf course, picnic areas, and a three-season gazebo, all designed to ensure that no students ever suffer from “nature-deficit disorder”. In addition to these on-site facilities, we also enjoy easy access to many nearby facilities for recreational and educational purposes. The wealth of educational and cultural opportunities of the Chicagoland metropolitan area are only a short ride away.
