Both of our fee-based programs are designed to support students who are independent, college-ready, self-motivating individuals.
Valiant Learning Support Program* The Valiant Learning Support Program (VLSP) is a fee-based program designed to assist college-ready students to navigate the academic challenges of the college curriculum. This program offers students customized learning strategy sessions with highly trained, professional Learning Specialists.
Learning Specialists provide each student enrolled in the program with 3 hours of 1:1 academic support on a weekly basis which may include working with the students on writing skills, reading comprehension skills, executive functioning skills such as time management and prioritization, and study skills.
Learning Specialists use the student's own course work to support students in their efforts to take ownership of their own learning and partner with students to promote self-advocacy and self-determination.
Please note that this program is not content driven.
The VLSP is located on the main floor of the Library.
PAC Program* The Pathways and Connections Program is an innovative and comprehensive fee based program designed to assist college-ready students on the Autism Spectrum. The program focuses on executive functioning skills in the social realm and supports students with transitional skills and integration into the campus community.
The PAC Program components include the following:
Individual, Customized Meetings with PAC Coordinator
Weekly Group Sessions
Social Events- On and Off-Campus
Students may apply to VLSP and/or PAC after they have been accepted by the College and have made a deposit.
