Community | Skills | Connections

Learning from the experience with our son who is on the spectrum, we saw him soar when he achieved these things. As such, our program is structured to achieve the same best possible outcomes. Students at HLC experience a safe and supportive learning environment and can carry the skills they have learned, and friendships they have made to college and adulthood.

Program Offerings
