Academy Of Learning
NCSS takes great pride in being an agency that promotes further education and learning for staff and clients alike. That is why NCSS created Academy of Learning located at 27 Lower Newton Street in Saint Albans.
The Academy of Learning provides clients with an opportunity to take classes each semester. There is an array of classes offered, and the curriculum is designed in theme days which include Independent Living Skills; Art & Music Appreciation; Health & Wellness; and Academics.
Enrolled students can select one or more theme days in which they are interested for a full day of activities. Students enjoy the learning environment and have fun socializing with their peers.
Classes usually begin at 9:00am and end approximately at 2:15pm.
We also provide busing for individuals who may not have transportation, and this is coordinated directly with the Academy of Learning team. It is also strongly encouraged that community members enroll in classes as well.
AOL also houses the Learning for Living Program!
Learning for Living is:
- A program that teaches practical independent living and life skills.
- Hands-on curriculum with support from Peer Advocates and community partners.
- Lesson plans that help students build confidence, set goals, problem-solve, and make responsible decisions.
- Classroom and community settings to provide real-life scenarios.
