The Easterseals Academy’s Upper School is a vocational, introduction and preparation alternative high school program for students fourteen to twenty-two years old (grades 9 through 12+) that are eligible for Exceptional Student Education (ESE) services.
The course of study focuses on transitioning students to life after high school through life-skills, employment, community and post-secondary instruction. Students gain confidence, attain maximum levels of independence, and develop pre-vocational and vocational skills while participating in a community based instructional program. Enrichment programs include arts, community-based instruction and field trips that enhance the student’s educational experience.
The Upper School is a contracted school site with the Manatee County School Board. It is located at the DeSoto Club of Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County, off State Road 70 in Bradenton.
We accept McKay, Gardner and Step Up for Students scholarships.
