St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School Life Skills Program
“God’s love for all life, stretching to the smallest most vulnerable forms, is why we, too, strive to welcome all into our Catholic schools, and place special emphasis on those who are vulnerable.” Scanlan, 2009
Diocesan Mission Statement
To provide all children with a Catholic school education. If at all possible, no child will be denied a Catholic education because of any disability.
St. Charles Life Skills Program Mission Statement
To create a student based, individualized program meeting the needs of students with more severe disabilities focusing on academics as well as skills needed for participation in the community. Our goal is to create a balance between academics both in and out of general education, life skills, and age appropriate peer interactions while teaching the Catholic Faith.
Our students receive individualized instruction in core academics both in and out of the general education setting and participate in gym, art, music, and computers with their peers. Daily life skills are taught in a group setting focusing on all areas of functional living. Opportunities to go out into the community to practice life skills learned in the classroom, are part of the curriculum. Our Life Skills students are an integral part of our school community and teach us all about compassion, understanding, friendship, acceptance of those who are different, and what it truly means to have a Jesus attitude.
