The Down Syndrome Academy announced expansion of their post-High School educational and vocational facility for students with Down syndrome, increasing classroom capacity from 30 to 50 students.
The Down Syndrome Academy opened its doors in January 2014, and has seen steady growth as families seek much more than just a special needs day program.In attributing the Academy’s growth, founder and President Rosa Rocha says, “our unique curriculum endeavors to build on their High School education so they can reach their academic potential and apply it to a fulfilling work and social life. The social programs also help students and families navigate the tough transition to adulthood within a friendly and supportive community.”
To gain this success, the Down Syndrome Academy is meeting the needs of the Down syndrome community by building on two cornerstone initiatives:
• Utilize an experienced and energetic group of teachers to build strong rapport with students and create a meaningful, customized curriculum
• Pursue solutions to address the needs of families in the Houston community regarding resources, vocational training, and housing.
