Options Program

About the Program

The Options Program provides students with intellectual disabilities and/or delays an opportunity to become a part of the Cathedral Catholic community. Students enrolled in the Options Program will become as fully integrated as possible into the total life of the school community through participation in general education classes and campus activities. The Options Program provides intensive, individualized instruction using research-based methodologies to maximize students' potential. In addition, a peer mentor program is utilized to help aide in this path of inclusion.

Peer Mentors

The Options Program is a yearlong course where selected students have the opportunity to work with the students enrolled in the options program. The peer mentors act as academic role models, working with the Options students to create positive study skills. They assist in one-to-one tutoring and accompany the Options students to their classes. These mentors also help facilitate social participation by eating with the students at lunch and attending school functions with them. The options program is not only beneficial to its students, but to its peer mentors as well. It teaches the mentors qualities you can't learn from a book: patience, character, tolerance, compassion, and respect. Living out these values encourages the rest of their student body to follow the example that the Option Program sets. Applying these traits prepares the mentors and the CCHS student body for a world beyond high school.
