Specialized Programs for Diverse Learners

All Scholars Achieving Greatly

Every diverse learner is capable of greatness. We’ve created innovative programming to ensure scholars reach their most rigorous outcomes.

Response to Intervention: Integrated Academic and Behavioral Support
These programs support all scholars, with or without IEPs, in growing academically and
behaviorally. We adapt these to the needs of the scholar, individualizing our support.

REACH/Explorers: Developmental Math and Literacy Programming
This program is for scholars with IEPs who need more time working on developmental math or
literacy. Schedules are individualized so every scholar is well prepared for his or her personal
ambitious goals.

Essential Skills: Programming for Scholars with Significant Disabilities
This program promotes rigorous, developmentally appropriate instruction in math, reading, and
transition, with meaningful inclusion throughout the day.

Travelers: Developmental Behavioral Programming
For scholars with FBAs and BIPs who need more support, we provide deeper behavioral
intervention through this program, including check-in/check-out systems, incentive and tracking
programs, and increased counseling.

Journey Program: Therapeutic Programming
This therapeutic program serves scholars with diagnosed behavioral and emotional needs.
Scholars supplement academic classes with group therapy, social and emotional learning, and
individual counseling. Scholars also receive transition programming through internships.

Opportunities Academy: Innovative Post-Secondary Programming
Nationally, there are few post-secondary options for scholars with significant disabilities. This
year we are piloting our own post-secondary program as an equivalent to college. OA creates
highly individualized PATH plans to ensure every scholar will achieve his or her highest level of
independence in terms of living, career, and community access.
