Early Intervention Development
Early Intervention Development serves students, ages 3 through 8, with developmental delays. The Christ-centered learning environment is developmentally appropriate and language enriched. Students engage in learning through differentiated curriculum and instruction. Early Intervention Development has traditionally smaller classes with a 5:1 student/teacher ratio. Appropriate intervention in a student’s early years may alleviate further struggles.
Talent Development serves students, ages 5-14, in grades 1-6 with mild to moderate learning exceptionalities. A multi-level classroom environment allows for academic material to be presented with differentiated learning styles in mind. Low student/teacher ratios enable greater opportunities for extensive accommodations and interventions. Classroom interventions include Dr. Feuerstein’s Instruments of Cognitive Enrichment (FIE) for critical thinking and reasoning.
Intermediate Intervention Development
The Intermediate Intervention Development Program serves students ages 8-14 with various moderate learning exceptionalities. The multi-level classroom, similar to the one-room schoolhouse approach, allows for instruction to students according to their academic ability.
For students in grades 7-12, Special Services is an alternative to the traditional classroom. The students typically have mild to moderate learning exceptionalities. After successfully completing the coursework, students will receive a standard high school diploma.
The Intensive program is designed for students in grades 7-12 who are academically two or more years behind. Students may move from the Intensive program to Special Services once academic skill levels are mastered. After completing the program, students will receive an ACCESS Diploma; a high school diploma based on modified standards and curriculum.
The vocational Victors class is designed for students, ages 14-22, with various intellectual development disorders, such as Down’s syndrome, severe Autism, and significant cognitive impairment. The class focuses on teaching Biblical principles through daily life skills that are necessary for independent living outside of the school environment. Classes are supplemented by various educational therapies. Victors students who receive a certificate of completion and continue to excel may be eligible to participate in a Post Transition Plan until the age of 22. This plan joins a challenging academic schedule with the development of job skills through internships.
