Vocational Programming

Our vocational programs include community placements that prepare students for meaningful jobs post-graduation. Day-to-day vocational tasks can include manufacturing/ assembly, packaging, cooking, clerical, and custodial work.  Our placements span over 10 businesses in the New Britain area.  We match each student to their unique area of interest and set them up for vocational success.
 
Placements focus on daily life skills, building experience through field trips, hands-on activities, and guest speakers. Our programs balance work with leisure, allowing students to develop their social skills on a daily basis.  We strive to produce a relaxed atmosphere with a clinical component, providing group and individual therapy as needed.

Flexible Learning Center

Our Flexible Learning Center is geared toward high school students who struggle in a typical secondary education environment and require individual support, attention, and programming.  We serve students with a history of truancy or expulsion.
 
The Flexible Learning Center allows students to recover credits for courses they may have failed.  Staff works closely with each student (as well as their parents/guardians) to build schedules that prevent truancy.  At the Flexible Learning Center, students can opt for later start times and early dismissal.  They can focus on meeting graduation requirements through accelerated credit programs and paid vocational programming as determined by PPT.  Special education teachers and BA-level instructional tutors provide 1:1 instruction to every student.  We equip each student with their own Chromebook and cubicle workspace.  We keep seating/grouping flexible. 
 
The Flexible Learning Center also promotes wellness through a fully-stocked fitness room, which includes an all-in-one weight machine, treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes, and yoga equipment.  Students can use the fitness room for PE credits if needed.
 
The atmosphere of the Flexible Learning Center is both clinical and casual.  Students have access to a lounge with drinks and snacks through the PBIS system.  They also have access to clinical services and related services (OT/PT/SLP) as needed.
