SA Life Academy offers a standards-based day program particularly designed for adult learners with intellectual and developmental disabilities. A certified special education teacher develops monthly lesson plans, each featuring a relevant instructional theme, that are tailored to the specific needs of the adult students. SA Life Academy accepted an initial class of ten to twelve students for up to five days per week. The program operates year-round from 9:00 AM-3:00 PM daily, and is located at St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church.
SA Life Academy also collaborates with volunteers and professionals from the community to focus on the curriculum and instruction of the Arts, Culinary Skills, Drama, and Movement.
Part of the staffing of SA Life Academy includes a contracted Behavioral Therapist.
In addition to our progress curriculum, SA Life Academy also focuses on volunteering and giving back to the community weekly.
