OnCampus is a partnership between the Syracuse City School District and Syracuse University’s School of Education. OnCampus began in the fall of 2000, and brings students who have developmental disabilities and who are between the ages of 18 and 21 to the SU campus for academic, personal, and social development. Syracuse City School students are supported by teaching staff from the city school district and by SU students who are in a variety of degree programs.
OnCampus students are:
- Between the ages of 18 and 21
- Have developmental disabilities (especially, but not limited to, those with more significant disabilities)
- Focusing on transition, rather than school-based, goals
- Within two years of graduation
Our program offers:
- An opportunity to audit one or two SU classes per semester
- Work experiences both on and near campus
- Participation in social and leisure activities with SU students
The OnCampus program strives to provide quality support; for this reason, we limit the total SCSD students involved to a small number. We try to have equal representations of gender, ethnicity, and high school of origin.
