The Threshold program is a two-year, campus-based program for highly motivated young adults with special needs.
The Threshold program teaches young adults with diverse learning issues and special needs to overcome fears and navigate life's challenges. From mastering public transportation to paying bills on time to understanding workplace dynamics, our curriculum provides a foundation in skills for independent living as well as career training in early childhood education or business services.
"Threshold gives young adults the opportunity to experience college live in an atmosphere in which they can be successful, achieve, and feel good about themselves."
–Jim Wilbur, Program Director
