Students build academic, personal, and workplace skills through one-on-one relationships with an adult mentor doing meaningful work outside the school building.

Guest Speakers &
Community Partners

Guest speakers enhance our students’ learning by sharing professional experiences and life stories every Tuesday and Thursday morning.

A wide range of community partners have worked hard to help expand our students’ horizons in a number of ways through volunteering and collaboration both in studios and outside the school.
