Every diverse learner is capable of greatness. We’ve created innovative programming to ensure scholars reach their most rigorous outcomes.

Response to Intervention: Integrated Academic and Behavioral Support

These programs support all scholars, with or without IEPs, in growing academically and behaviorally. We adapt these to the needs of the scholar, individualizing our support.

REACH/Explorers: Developmental Math and Literacy Programming

This program is for scholars with IEPs who need more time working on developmental math or literacy. Schedules are individualized so every scholar is well prepared for his or her personal ambitious goals.

Essential Skills: Programming for Scholars with Significant Disabilities

This program promotes rigorous, developmentally appropriate instruction in math, reading, and transition, with meaningful inclusion throughout the day.

Travelers: Developmental Behavioral Programming

For scholars with FBAs and BIPs who need more support, we provide deeper behavioral intervention through this program, including check-in/check-out systems, incentive and tracking programs, and increased counseling.

Journey Program: Therapeutic Programming

This therapeutic program serves scholars with diagnosed behavioral and emotional needs.
Scholars supplement academic classes with group therapy, social and emotional learning, and individual counseling. Scholars also receive transition programming through internships.

Opportunities Academy: Innovative Post-Secondary Programming

Opportunities Academy [OA] is Collegiate Academies’ rigorous, post-secondary full day program for scholars with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Carver High School houses our OA program on its campus, and students attend class there and at Delgado campuses in addition to attending internship and externship at Collegiate Academies schools and community businesses.

OA supports each student in achieving his or her highest level of independence in pursuit of meaningful and fulfilling personal and professional outcomes in the areas of independent living, community access, and career readiness.
