Students with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities are welcomed and celebrated by our wonderful student body here at Saint John Paul the Great.
Students receiving services through our Options Program are not only taught foundational academic skills in our building, students in the Options Program attend classes with peer mentors, allowing them the benefit of exposure to our unique theological and ethical curriculum. Students receiving Options services are also exposed to a variety of occupations within our building, and are taught vital vocational skills, through their participation in our Options Shop and other vocational endeavors.
Members of our Options Community include not only our students who receive Options services, but also fellow students who serve as Peer Mentors to our students receiving Options services. Saint John Paul’s Peer Mentor program is a vibrant network of students who provide friendship and encouragement for one another throughout their school day.
