From Our Director
I am glad you want to know more about The Horizons School! It may seem overwhelming to consider all that one must learn to assume adult roles at school, home and in the community.
- Who teaches young adults to follow a daily schedule, live within a budget and prepare nutritious meals?
- Who guides young adults to develop friendships, use public transit and prepare for employment?
- Who helps them to manage personal health and leisure time?
We do this and more at The Horizons School! Our experienced staff will guide your young adult through real-life experience in an authentic community setting. Your student will live and learn away from home, develop a group of friends, and work in local businesses.
Horizons students develop, implement and evaluate personal goals. For instance, students acquire skills to manage maintenance medication and clinical appointments. Horizons students learn to use public transit for errands, work and appointments. They shop for groceries after planning weekly meals and budgeting for expenditures.
We offer individuals with learning and other disabilities an inclusive, holistic life preparatory program! Surveys completed by alumni and families reveal a majority of our graduates successfully live independently, manage personal needs, and maintain paid employment. We feel proud of their many achievements!
