Academy for Inclusive Learning and Social Growth


The Academy for Inclusive Learning and Social Growth offers a fully inclusive post-secondary college education and experience to students with different intellectual or developmental abilities who do not meet higher-education requirements for admission as a degree-seeking student. The program involves enrollment as non-degree seeking audit students in typical university courses and includes social integration, career exploration and training resulting in a Certificate of Social Growth and Development.

The KSU Academy for Inclusive Learning and Social Growth provides a university-based, post-secondary education experience for persons with different intellectual and developmental abilities. The Academy, by design, focuses on independence through an inclusive campus program - encouraging social growth and development through real-life college experiences. The programs are tuition and fee-based with housing options available on and off campus. The Academy is comprised of two certificate programs that work in conjunction. The initial program, which began in 2009, Academic, Social, and Career Enrichment (ASCE) program, is designed to provide a two-year foundational base for enhancement in an inclusive setting. This foundation program has been approved as a Comprehensive Transition Program (CTP). The Advanced Leadership and Career Development Program (ALCD), which began in 2014, is designed to assist students to enhance existing skills in the areas of career development, self-advocacy, leadership and independence, and academic exploration.
