Where science & compassion meet the challenge of autism.
Alpine Learning Group’s Business Academy
A New Jersey Department of Education approved transition program for learners ages 16-21.
Alpine Learning Group offers programming through The Business Academy, providing a wide variety of center and community-based structured learning experiences to enhance the employability skills and independence of young adults with autism.
The Program Includes:
Comprehensive vocational and life skills assessments
Individualized targeted goals for independence and employability
Coursework in job preparation skills
College readiness training
Social skills and recreation training
Supported internship placements
Job matching services
Identification of community supports and resources for post-graduation success
The program is offered for a 180-day school year and a 30-day extended school year program and is geared toward individuals with autism who test in the low-average to average range on cognitive assessments and who have been working towards completion of academic requirements for graduation with some degree of support.
Graduates of the Business Academy have found employment in their communities at least part-time, continue with social skill development groups into adulthood, and some have gone on to enroll in college coursework.
" Alpine’s Business Academy gave me the opportunity to successfully transition from student to a gainfully employed young man. I learned how to have confidence in myself and become my own advocate too!"
— Former Alpine Learner
