Helping Everyone Reach Outstanding Educational Success

Visit the H.E.R.O.E.S. website for details about summer day camps and school-year opportunities.

H.E.R.O.E.S. programs are designed for early childhood through young adults with a focus on vocation, social skills, communication & recreation and leisure.

Younger groups have the opportunity to work on calendar, weather, functional math, and reading for all abilities. Older students look into community for an instructional focus on real life applications. Other activities may include swimming, using the DART system (older children)  practice skills in the community (restaurants, movies and more). Increasing appropriate communication and friendship skills will be embedded throughout the entire day.
