ICEI - Interdisciplinary Center for Evaluation & Intervention

Training Overview

The Learning Academy Services offers pre-placement training to students currently enrolled in high school. Students are educated on topics that include: interview skills, resume development, navigating your community, handling work related social interactions and conflict, and completing job applications. Our goal is to prepare students for taking the next step into employment after graduating high school. We accept eight to ten students per session. Classes are held Monday-Thursday for five hours a day to equal 20 hours. Sessions are scheduled during summer months when students are out of school.
