Independent Life Skills

   We started a new ILS program in 2019 where our teachers, student life staff and student life educators come together to teach independent life skills like time management, money management, social skills, personal skills, maintenance skills, decision making skills, event planning and many more. 



OSD Honor Dorm  

  We prepare students to live independently before they transition after graduation.  

   Junior/Senior Curriculum-similar to the student life curriculum but more independent living teaching.

   Learning responsibilities.

   Involves in Job Training.


After School Job Training

   OSD has occupational training for students interested in after school employment This program is similar to the OTOD program where the students earn minimum wage, learn valuable work skills and develop good work ethics in various positions to prepare them for future employment after graduation. The jobs normally are on campus. Some jobs when permitted, are off campus in the community where they learn to work with and blend in with their hearing counterparts with appropriate accommodations if needed.


All our dorms are equipped with

   Community Kitchens

   Community Living room with flat screen TVs

   Rooms to accommodate students with beds and dressers

   Senior Independent Living include the same things as traditional dorms and it also includes a TV,         

   microwave and personal refrigerators.
