For the 2016-17 school year, Scecina Memorial High School is offering a pilot program to serve students who are high functioning on the autism spectrum. This program is called CREST (Crusaders Reaching Educational and Social Success Together).
Students in this program will be able to receive the same quality education that all Scecina students receive, leading to their high school diploma in preparation for career and college.
The academic program is based on the Indiana Core 40 Diploma as a minimum standard. CREST will incorporate a social skills curriculum to enable students to successfully master the high school curriculum, support post-secondary goals, and work toward transitioning to a university or career setting.
With CREST, we have an exceptional team and program for college-bound students in the Indianapolis metropolitan area who have challenges in social interaction, executive functioning, flexible thinking, speech and sensory-motor development.
