The STRIVE Academy, in partnership with school districts, parents and students, will provide transitional independent living skills based on IEP needs.
This is the only educational program of its kind in Central Iowa where students will live on campus, gaining independent living and employability skills.
The STRIVE Academy curriculum will be technology-based, providing computers for every student.
This program will require instruction that is based primarily in the STRIVE classroom, the lab, and on the job training.
The program will start with 10-15 students.
