Achieve: A Comprehensive Post-Secondary Transition Program for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities
Welcome to ACHIEVE at Highline College!
ACHIEVE is a comprehensive post-secondary
transition program that includes credit and non-credit classes, intensive
advising, involvement in campus life, community-based internships, and
job placement services. All ACHIEVE students are assigned an Educational Case
Manager and Employment Consultant who work with the student to draft and
implement a comprehensive, individual plan for employment. Specific courses are
determined based on skills and competencies needed for the student to
achieve his or her identified employment goal(s).
ACHIEVE is partially funded as one of the Transition and Postsecondary Programs for Students with Intellectual Disabilities (TPSID) through the Office of Postsecondary Education serving as a model demonstration program for Washington.
