Secondary Program

Our program centers on the needs of young adults, ages 17-21 years old, to function independently within the home and workplace. We begin with a comprehensive vocational assessment for each student. We work individually with students to emphasize how skills they learned in middle school can be applied to everyday life situations. Students’ interests and aptitudes guide instruction in vocational training, recreation, and on-the-job training.

The Timothy School Difference:

  • Instruction on-campus in a simulated worksite utilizing the Practical Assessment Exploration System (PAES).
  • Authentic work experiences through on-campus internships such as the Timothy School Crafters.
  • Placement in work study programs within the community. Over the last several years, our Secondary Center students have held internships with community partners such as Wawa, Holiday Inn Express and Trinity Presbyterian Church.

“We will never forget everything that the teachers and administrators have for our daughter. Words cannot express our heartfelt thanks for the many years of hard work and the love that you have shown her. We will always remember the great staff at The Timothy School and we will always be truly thankful that our daughter spent the past nine years there.”
