The Continuing Adult Education Program (CAEP) prepares a person with developmental disabilities for independent living while at the same time providing an opportunity for educational services and social activities tailored to individual needs regardless of race, creed or religion. The program offers educational and social activities for students from all over the Greater Cleveland area.

Each student is taught according to his or her own individual needs. The program provides students a well rounded experience so they can better function in today’s society.
