- About Us -

Knight Campus Warwick, RI

The program, based at the Community College of RI Knight Campus, Village at Tanglewood Apartments, and various community settings, utilizes a student-centered approach to teach functional academics, independent living skills, self-advocacy, community involvement, and the skills necessary for seeking, obtaining and maintaining employment– the ingredients for a successful satisfying life beyond high school.

Most students participate for one school year. However, based on need and IEP Team recommendation, a student may return for a second year.
