The Briggs Continuing Education Center is designed to support young adults who are transitioning from high school to postsecondary education, competitive employment, while moving toward a more independent way of life. This is accomplished through a coordinated and outcome-oriented plan to prepare the students to reach his or her maximum level of independence in the stated areas. This plan should be fluid and will change as the student matures, experiences more opportunities and acquires skills.
The goal at the Briggs Center is to provide each student with the necessary skills needed to foster independence. It is expected that each student will have his or her own challenges; however we continue to encourage each student to begin to develop his or her own path towards, a greater sense of independence, develop self advocacy skills, self reliance and self worth.
