                                                      Our Goals

Within the field of education, there are many approaches and methods available to provide opportunities to students who have, until now, experienced limited success in traditional special education programs. East Capitol High School is a unique blend of academic education, counseling, work experience, and outdoor education designed to serve children ages 12-21 who have been determined eligible to receive special education under section 14.702 of the Illinois School Code in the categories of ED/LD/OHI. We believe the synergy inherent in the program allows students to apply the knowledge gained within each component to help them be successful within each of the areas listed above.
