Exploration Academy increases positive post-school outcomes for young adults ages 18 to 25. Applicants must have completed St. Michael School’s Upper School or a high school program of studies. The objective is to assist students with their transition to employment/volunteer opportunities and independent living within their local communities. Student driven opportunities are provided through career exploration, targeted job coaching, and continued growth of self-determination skills.
In order to be eligible students must meet minimum requirements
· Must be 18—25 years old and have graduated from St. Michael or an accredited high school program
· Must have the ability to complete tasks with minimum teacher supervision and direction
· Must be motivated to participate in exploration activities
We understand transition is an individualized process; therefore, students have different timelines for success. While the maximum time a student can stay in Exploration Academy is 4 years, there is no formal completion to the program. Many students will achieve their goals of finding volunteer or work placements within 2-3 years.
Annual Tuition = $7250 (scholarships available for those who qualify)
