We believe a comfortable environment is a nurturing environment and a nurturing environment is a learning environment. Every room is filled with large windows and bright colors. In every moment lies a learning opportunity, and both Milestones' program and environment are geared toward taking every advantage of each moment large and small.
Individual Academic Levels
Milestones' students often have uneven academic profiles. With our low student to staff ratio, our faculty is able to meet students where they are and appropriately challenge their abilities with a variety of curricula, ranging from advanced to remedial academics.
Learning Skills for Life
Our Transitions Program is designed for students 14-22 years of age and offers an opportunity to prepare for adulthood. Our expert educators and therapists help young adults gain valuable skills, with flexible programming designed to fit our students' individual needs and goals.
Milestones Day School is an approved and accredited private school (Chapter 766) providing a complete education for students by balancing stimulating academics with teaching new and more appropriate therapeutic skills. Our therapeutic curriculum is vast and comprises in-depth lessons and interventions practiced daily for social skills, executive skills, coping/regulation skills, daily living skills, and self-esteem. Every aspect of our program, from the deliberate architecture to the comprehensive curriculum, has been custom designed to support and nurture students while increasing their proficiency at learning and interacting.
Milestones Day School’s Transitions Services are designed for students aged 15-22 to assist with all aspects of transitioning to adulthood. The Transitions Program accepts students who progress through our day school as well as students who are currently enrolled in other programs and are looking to gain skills for this next phase of their life.
Our program was carefully developed to ensure students experience a successful transition and to assist with post-graduation goals.
