We believe that our students should leave the Davis Center with the ability to advocate for themselves, become a contributing member of society, and live independently to the best of their ability. We empower our students by teaching them the life skills, social skills, and work skills necessary to be a valuable asset to society.
The Davis Center, a unique school focused on vocational and independent living skills for students with disabilities, works collaboratively as a school community to assess and implement appropriate individualized instruction and strives to stay current and informed about post-secondary preparation, new technology, and best practices.
