This optional third-year program moves students to the next level of independence, away from direct residential supervision to a graduated system of supported living, employment and personal management services.  Students are engaged in jobs or college courses during the day and return to campus for evening classes.

Third-year students attend courses that reinforce and expand on learned skills and continue with weekly advising sessions to help problem-solve and set life goals. Faculty conduct apartment site visits to ensure transfer of independent living skills. Students participate in and plan social activities with classmates and Horizons Alumni under the guidance of faculty.
