Esperanza Education Center provides a diverse educational program for students high school age to adulthood. They offer a site-based instructional program that incorporates functional academics, world concepts, art, music, physical education, independent living, and vocational skills. They also offer a community-based instructional program that focuses on employment skills, vocational training, social and emotional growth, daily living skills, and mobility training that promotes each individual’s growth toward an independent life.
