Options Program

For high school students with disabilities

The Options Program provides a student-centered learning environment for individuals with diagnosed intellectual disabilities. The curriculum, activities and community involvement focus on development as a whole person  individualized academic progress, spiritual education and communication and life skills. An integral part of the Eastside Catholic community, the primary mission of the Options Program is to engage students in a Catholic faith-based community while preparing them for the transition from high school to a life of independent living through comprehensive career and post-secondary exploration. In lieu of a diploma, Options Program students earn a “Certificate of Completion” at the end of the program.

Depending on the visit experience your student selects, candidates will leave the EC campus after a parent meeting or parents will return to the EC campus to pick up their student at the end of the school day.
