Cornerstone Inclusion Program

PHILOSOPHY AND PURPOSE

Building upon the mission of Mount St. Mary Catholic High School, the Cornerstone Inclusion Program supports the belief that all students deserve the opportunity to maximize their academic, social, and spiritual potential. The vision at Mount St. Mary is that students from a wide range of intellectual abilities will continue to learn and advance if provided a rich, rewarding Catholic learning environment.

PROGRAM EXPLANATION

The Cornerstone Inclusion Program provides an inclusive educational experience for students with intellectual disabilities. Students benefit from inclusion opportunities in a variety of academic courses for 100% of the school day. Students in The Cornerstone Program receive more individualized instruction as needed to facilitate their continued academic progress. All students will be given a "Certificate of Achievement" upon completion of the program, rather than a high school diploma. Students accepted into the Cornerstone Inclusion Program incur an additional $1,000 fee per year.

ADMISSION PROCESS

The application process for the Cornerstone Inclusion Program will take place in two parts.

1) Application for Admission

2) Interview with the prospective student and parents, as well as a classroom observation

A copy of current (within the last 3 years) psycho-educational testing MUST be provided to Mount St. Mary High School to complete the application for admissions. Psycho-educational testing can be completed through private testing or through an IEP with your public school district.

Cornerstone Inclusion Program Homework and Classwork Agreement

We understand that for our child to be successful in the Cornerstone Inclusion Program, strong support from home is needed in the areas of academic, extracurricular activities, and social communication. We agree to provide the following support to our student:

1. There will be homework every night. I agree to work with my student to make sure his/her homework assignments are completed and returned to the teacher on time.

2. I will review my student’s agenda, PowerSchool, Google Classroom, Schoology, etc every night to ensure all assignments and projects are completed on time.

3. To ensure that my student has all of the supplies and books for each class. If a book is needed in audio format, I understand I need to provide that also.

4. I will not do my students homework for him/her. I understand I am there to offer guidance, support, review for tests and quizzes.

5. If there is something that needs to be clarified or discussed, I will reach out to my student’s teachers and understand that I may not contact the Student Scholar that aids my student during the school day.

6. I understand that if I do not support my student at home, then my student may be asked to leave the program..

7. I understand that the students who are accepted into the Cornerstone Inclusion Program must enroll as a Freshman.

8. I understand that the students in the Cornerstone Inclusion Program will receive a “Certificate of Completion” and not a diploma.
