College Achieve Central Charter School strives to ensure, in its special education program, that all students with disabilities have available to them a free appropriate public education (FAPE). We believe that our students have learning differences, not learning disabilities. College Achieve Central Charter School realizes that the quality of a special education program for such children is achieved by having high expectations, rigor and access to the general education curriculum to the maximum extent possible.
We are fully committed to individualizing instruction and supporting students in general education classes. General and special educators work together as a unified team to enhance their efforts and resources towards providing special learners with an equal education opportunity, while meeting their instructional needs. This is achieved through placing students in the least restrictive environment.
