We offer a wide range of coursework through a curriculum that encompasses 10 blended subject areas: Language Arts, Math and Science, Social Studies, Life Skills, Vocational Skills, Wellness, and Personal Enrichment, as well as an array of Continuing Adult Education classes. Chapel Haven's Special Education faculty teaches nearly 70 classes each quarter. These are the foundation from which special education students build lives of successful independence.
Classes on banking and budgeting, clothing management, cleaning, reading directions, and utilizing public transportation are taught by the teachers and supplemented by the Residential Life Skills Instructor. Classes on career exploration, resume writing, and workplace social skills complement the Employment Program.
Other electives include Drama, music, ceramics, drawing, athletics & Yearbook
The goal of our education program is community integration. We draw on our extensive local resources by bringing professionals from the Greater New Haven community to our site to offer classes, workshops, and seminars. Whether it’s a local artist teaching painting, a New Haven professional conducting human sexuality seminars, or a human resources manager from a local corporation speaking on interviewing techniques, we endeavor to expose our students to as many community resources as possible.
