"The Summer program at CIP was ideal for my teen—it was a  perfect first 'away' experience and an excellent balance of independence with appropriate supports. The staff was great and truly worked with his individual needs!"

Experience Independence Title

Since 2009, Summer@CIP has helped hundreds of students with learning differences prepare for their next steps; whether it’s attending a college, preparing for the workforce, or learning to live independently. 

Get a Taste of College Title

Summer@CIP provides young adults with autism and learning differences the opportunity to further develop the valuable skills necessary for making a well-prepared transition.

Fun Activities Title

Throughout our two-week sessions, 30+ fun and exciting activities are planned based on your student’s area of interest. Spend some time outdoors this summer hiking, swimming, and exploring local highlights.

Past students have enjoyed ropes courses, theme parks, and professional sports outings. Participants will also have some scheduled downtime to relax and socialize with peers.

Admissions Title

Summer@CIP welcomes participants entering high school grades 10, 11, & 12 in the Fall, as well as recent high school graduates to apply. Generally, each program has up to 30 participants, and all students are assessed to ensure a proper fit. Applications are considered for the program on a rolling basis until capacity is reached at each of the program locations. Learn more about admissions
