One, two or three week classes in June

Secondary Enrichment (SE) offers countless opportunities for fun and learning for middle- or high-school students with visual impairments. The topics offered vary every summer, but examples range from beginning food preparation skills to running a catering business, general physical fitness to PE for SBOE credit, art, theater arts, career education, technology, and travel in the community.

Nearly all SE classes give students opportunities to use and develop their academic and technology skills, practice Orientation and Mobility, and enhance their social, independent living, and self-determination skills, both on and off campus.

Who Can Attend:

SE classes are for middle- or high-school students with visual impairments who meet these criteria:

  • 12 years of age or older, up through the summer after their high school graduation.
  • Able to participate well in group activities, with limited one-on-one assistance.
  • Moderately to largely independent in areas such as eating, dressing, personal hygiene, communication, and mobility.
  • Have no challenging behaviors that interfere with the instruction of self or others.
  • Can complete the full length of the class to which they are admitted.
  • Secondary students who function four or more grade levels below their age expectation should apply for the Practical Experiences in Expanded Core (PEEC).
