To cultivate self-reliance and determination in all students, so they may discover their unique potential and maximize their capabilities by providing a transition focused, personalized education program in an environment that fosters acceptance and honors individual strengths.


To have students of all developmental levels thrive not only in the school environment, but in the community, and graduate with the academic and life skills necessary to become their personal best.
