Pitt Academy’s Postgraduate Program is a two year extension to Pitt Academy’s K-12 Program. We are open for enrollment to qualifying 18-24 year old individuals with learning differences.
Pitt Academy’s Postgraduate Program gives students every opportunity to reach their own social, personal, and employment goals in a student centered learning environment that meets the needs and abilities of each individual.
Student vision meetings allow staff, students and their families to set goals and collaboratively work towards attainment. Families will meet with our postgraduate director throughout the year to reassess student goals, progress, and achievements made.

“By being a student in postgrad I have been able to work in the community and enjoy times with my friends. I have gained writing, work, and communication skills. Because of this, I now have a job at Culver’s. Postgrad is a great program because it teaches you how to learn, live, and be an adult.”
