Pitt Academy is excited to announce that we will be starting a Postgraduate Program launching in the Fall of 2018. This will be a two year program for Pitt Academy graduates.
The purpose of Pitt Academy’s postgraduate program is to serve as an academic and practical living extension of Pitt Academy’s current high school curriculum. The program will focus upon four pillars for the curriculum including functional academics, independent living instruction, community engagement, employment and vocational training.
The Four Pillars
Independent Living Instruction:
Employment and Vocational Training:
This enhancement of the existing curriculum would focus upon improving academic and functional achievement based on the individual student’s needs, taking into account the students strengths, preferences, and interests.
Our objectives to achieve our goals and meet our students needs include but are not limited to:
- Providing socialization opportunities
- Academic enrichment- such as partnerships with colleges/universities
- Training and employment placement
