The High School
The Foundation High School, located in Milford, Connecticut, is a language-based program designed to meet the language, academic, vocational, social, and transitional needs of students with a wide range of learning challenges. Students have the opportunity to work individually and in small groups in academic areas including language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, as well as in vocational areas that include food service, computers, woodworking, horticulture, and graphic arts. Career and Life Skills classes help familiarize students with the world of work and with developing their independent living skills.
All students participate in the Work Study program that places students at job sites in the community.
Work Study supervisors provide training opportunities and help students recognize competitive employment expectations. Students seriously considering continuing their academic education beyond high school may have the opportunity to enroll in a course at a local community college or university to fulfill their Work Study requirement.
Transitional planning is an ongoing school component. A coordinator works with students, families, state agencies, private providers and local employers to help students acquire competitive or supported employment, job training or further education after graduation.
Students who successfully complete local graduation requirements are eligible to receive a high school diploma from their district.
