EAGLE Academy inclusive post-secondary education program is a two-year certificate program of study which teaches independent living and career skills and empowers students to achieve Equal Access to Gainful Learning and Employment (EAGLE). Our program currently focuses on years 3 and 4 of the college experience, meaning our students have either attended other post secondary programs for a year or two, worked previously, or have been out of high school for a couple of years.

EAGLE Academy helps young adults with intellectual disabilities make a successful transition to adult life by providing them with an inclusive college experience. This experience will provide development of their academic, vocational, daily living, and decision making skills. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a certificate of completion. EAGLE Academy is committed to the inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities in all aspects of the university and the surrounding community. Students will direct the development of their individual program of study through initial and on-going STAR Person-Centered Planning. The Program of Study is a unique and individualized plan for achievement in academic areas, independent living skills, career development skills, and university life.
