Welcome to FUTURE

The FUTURE Postsecondary Education Program is a two-year course of study which empowers students to achieve gainful employment in the community.

FUTURE helps young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities make a successful transition from high school to adult life by providing them with career counseling and developing their academic, vocational, and decision making skills. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a vocational certificate.

FUTURE is a comprehensive transition program for unique learners, highly motivated young adults whose disability is characterized by significant limitations in both intellectual functioning and adaptive behavior. FUTURE students typically received special education services while in high school, graduating with either a regular diploma or a special diploma.
