The L.I.F.E. Academy is a tuition-free, open-enrollment Lee County charter school designed to promote self advocacy, and develop life skills for independent living. Students with intellectual disabilities who are entering grades six through twelve (ages 11-22) are welcomed, as well as post-graduate students who have not yet reached the maximum age of 22.
Our individualized programs focus on academic skills, daily life skills and vocational/workforce skills. These three areas help students become increasingly well-adjusted and productive members of their community in post-school activities.
Transportation to the L.I.F.E. Academy can be provided by the school. Students who require transportation may receive bus service from their homes to the school.
The mission of the Board of Directors of the Goodwill L.I.F.E. Academy is to graduate students with the skills necessary for optimum independent living and supported employment.
