Southern Vermont College (SVC) will host a College Steps Program Open House Tuesday, February 10, in Everett Mansion's Burgdorff Gallery from 4 to 5:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend this event, and light refreshments will be provided. In 2013, SVC partnered with the College Steps Program (CSP), joining two other Vermont Colleges engaged in this innovative program: Castleton State and Johnson State. The Program provides students with cognitive impairments (e.g., autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities) with an opportunity to participate in a modified two-year college experience. This experience helps students to acquire academic, social, vocational and independent living skills. Students in this program will obtain a certificate upon completion of the requirements.
