The mission of the New Vista Career Academy Vocational Program is to help individuals with high functioning autism learn skills for the adult world specific to managing and maintaining employment and healthy living.
Students will be engaged academically, socially and vocationally and model activities that lead to independent living. Participants will generalize their social competencies in the workplace and learn to become a capable employee while working towards honing skills that align with their vocational aspirations. The overall goal for participants is to gain the skills necessary for a career pathway and to obtain a job in their desired field while demonstrating healthy and sustainable habits for the adult world.
New Vista Career Academy gives students an opportunity to leverage their strengths and interests to develop career goals that will help them live the life they desire.
