Courage to Succeed

Courage to Succeed College Program

This is Charterhouse’s college program for students with neurological differences, including high functioning autism, learning disabilities, ADHD, and traumatic brain injury. The program seeks to help students learn skills that will help them earn a college degree, work in their chosen field, and live a productive, independent, and happy life. Three days a week students work towards their Associates Degrees by attending courses at a local community college. On other days, students work with their social coaches and peer group on study skills, experiential social skills activities, and self advocacy. The program uses social and academic supports to assist participating students. Social, communication, academic, leisure and personal living skills are assessed and developed through a planned approach.
