Program Description : St. Elizabeth School graduates students who are successful at home, in the workforce, and in the community. SES provides a comprehensive 11-month coeducational program emphasizing individualized academic instruction, social/emotional development, functional life skills, and vocational training. Upon completion of the educational program, students earn a High School Diploma or a Certificate of Completion from their local school system. The academic program at St. Elizabeth School is highly individualized, uses researched-based reading and math programs, and encourages active participation by students of all levels of ability. St. Elizabeth School has a diversified and robust work-based learning program, extensive work and training sites in the community, and transition services to guide families and students to adult service agencies after graduation. The school encourages students to experience a variety of placements in real-world situations and provides additional self-advocacy training. SES promotes social and emotional development through group and individual therapy, and uses the school-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) system to encourage prosocial behavior. Full-time nurses and a consulting psychiatrist are on staff to assist with medication management. Students participate in a wide variety of extracurricular activities during and after school, including weekends.
