Career College is year-long post-secondary certificate program for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Career College is specifically designed for students who are completing the Occupational Course of Study Program (OCS) in high school or for struggling students in the GED or curriculum programs. Career College incorporates a mixture of hands-on learning, computer and job seeking skills, as well as basic reading and math skills, along with participation in a hands-on practicum experience within their program of study. Students participate in all campus activities. Students pay a tuition per semester, and can apply for waivers or scholarships from various community partners. Classes are offered on campus Monday-Thursday 8:30-3:30. Students also attend a seminar the first Friday of every month. Included in the schedule are classes that will help students achieve greater success in obtaining and keeping a job, as well as classes that will assist in skills needed to help pass college placement tests and to prepare a student for college-level work. The college prep courses allows underprepared students to learn the skills they will need to succeed in college classes or to brush up academic skills they may have forgotten.
