High School Curriculum

How do St. Anthony's Students Spend their time?


Vocational Training




Resource Room

Students in the Elementary Program are transitioned to the High School Program in the spring of their 8th-grade year. Transition includes a visit to their prospective High School including a tour of the facility, meeting staff and current students. Students can be transitioned as many times as necessary to help them become comfortable.

The High School program encompasses grades 9-12 and focuses on inclusion, social skills, and the student's transition to vocational development which is tailored to each student in its speed and direction.

Resource Rooms are staffed by a certified special education teacher, job coaches, and paraprofessional aides.
