Learning Is For Everyone
The LIFE program is a mentorship program, where the students are paired up with adult mentors. The mentors meet with the students at least once a month, sometimes more. During the sessions, the students learn how to navigate the world along side their Deaf/hh mentor. The sessions include life skills, social development, and advocacy skills. The goal is for the students to gradually take on more and more responsibilities, until they are ready to become mentors for another group of students.
The Middle School Robotics Club builds and programs robots, and competes against other teams, both locally and regionally. This club is open to all Middle School students (6th-8th grade) and runs from September through February. Additional robotics programs occur during the summer months to keep our technical skills sharp.
The FCD (Middle and High School) Travel Club is a club where students will be empowered to plan, fundraise and experience travel. They build itineraries, fundraise for their trip, and head off for a fabulous experience as a group!
Students get the chance to practice songs in ASL, and then performing in various places. Also, students will create ASL stories to perform using our new Visual Technology Studio Room. The stories will be posted on our website and social media (Facebook and Instagram).
