The mission of Coastal Learning Center- Monmouth, is to offer a comprehensive educational placement designed to meet the needs of students with behavioral and multiple disabilities. We strive to enhance our students’ self-esteem, increase their self-control and improve their sense of self-responsibility while providing them with an individualized education. This is accomplished by providing a structured, yet flexible, therapeutic environment staffed with caring individuals.
Part of our mission is to prepare our students for the future, whether it is to further their education, seek vocational training, join the armed services or enter the work force. Through academics, art, computers, counseling, sports, reading center, structured learning experience (SLE), and practical arts our students’ lives are enriched.
A low student-to-staff ratio allows us to know the students well and provides them with the opportunity to relate to us easily. We believe that a positive relationship with at least one warm, supportive, firm, consistent adult can lead to the social and emotional growth of our special needs students.
