Exploration Academy increases positive post-school outcomes for young adults ages 18—25. Applicants must have completed a high school program or St. Michael’s Upper School. The objective is to assist students with transition to employment or volunteer positions and independent living within their local communities. Student driven opportunities are provided through career exploration, continued growth of self-determination skills, and optional HiSET exam preparation. Through targeted job coaching, individualized education and family collaboration, students apply skills learned in on-campus apprenticeships to successfully navigate community based living, volunteer, and work experiences.
