Our Life Centered Education curriculum is designed to target IEP trasition goals and objectives. Our teachers will implement this along side each student's daily academic lessons and additional programming. LCE is designed to correlate with transition IEP goals. 

Our transition students will be active in the Kennett Square community as they use their bank cards to shop, eat and budget for school programs.
