About Vista Learning Center

Structured classroom learning combined with social thinking skills

The foundation of Vista Learning Center is the belief that no two students learn or are developmentally alike. We must use various best practices to identify the most effective for each student. Vista will explore every opportunity to capitalize on each student’s abilities and interests. This approach requires the contribution of service providers, teacher, team members, and administration working together in a wide range of environments.

The Vista Learning Center serves students from grades 5 to 12 and provides small-group academic instruction for those with Autism, speech-language impairment, emotional disturbances, and other health impairments (OHI).

The programs at the Vista Learning Center teach rigorous academics in parallel with social thinking skills, which are essential for students to navigate the ever-present demands of life. Our highly focused approach integrates families, students, school staff and other service providers to create a community of trust, respect and understanding.

Our programs teach this by creating a culture of confidence, communication, and continued learning that recognizes and considers each student’s unique needs.

  • Confidence
    The Vista Learning Center supports students by working with them to improve their confidence, self-esteem, and social skills, including communication, cooperation, problem-solving, trust, leadership, and recreation.
  • Communication
    We build a partnership with families, including agencies working with the family at home. This level of involvement will support the student’s academic success and personal and educational goals through working together. We support parents and students in the ways that will help them most and develop strategies for everyday experiences to become personalized learning opportunities.
  • Spark Continued Learning
    The Vista Learning Center offers focused instruction by course-correcting negative behavior in real-time. Educators at Vista may explore the social and environmental factors contributing to the behavior and provide immediate feedback for improvement.

These approaches act as the cornerstone that helps us build curriculum and support plans that spark each student’s love for continued learning while nurturing their unique social knowledge skills and laying a solid foundation for success.
