Appropriate Independence is defined as "supported self-sufficiency, aligned with individual strengths and guided by Christian values". Current occupational program options include technology, culinary arts and horticulture. The Student Life program includes three phases of on-campus residential environments; dorms, houses/halls and apartments. Upon completion of the program students receive an accredited certificate of completion in Technology, Culinary Arts or Horticulture.
