ABOUT OTSEGO ACADEMY
Otsego Academy at Pathfinder Village provides the full college experience. We offer creative, individualized options that improve preparation for employment for students with disabilities who have completed their high school education. At the same time, attending the Academy will strengthen students' independent living and social thinking skills necessary for life and job success.
Research has shown that students with disabilities who participate in post-secondary education are more likely to work in competitive settings, use fewer work-related supports and earn more.
At Otsego Academy at Pathfinder Village, our students:
- Participate in engaging academic coursework
- Enjoy community life in a beautiful village setting
- Explore career paths
- Find full-time employment
- And realize independence!
We offer an intensive, two-year post-secondary program focused on pre-requisites for successful, community-based employment. Students will build skills for employment based upon vocational assessments, classroom instruction, job exploration, internships and apprenticeships within Pathfinder Village as well as with select community business partners.
