The mission of Bradford Preparatory School’s Department of Exceptional Children is to ensure that children and youth with disabilities develop educationally, socially, emotionally, and vocationally through the provision of a free, appropriate education and related services in the least restrictive environment. We will continue to educate, support and advocate for students with disabilities and assist them in achieving their true potential.
Through the Individual Education Program process, Bradford Preparatory School offers a free appropriate public education to each of its students with special needs. This includes the Occupational Course of Study courses to our high school students if determined to be appropriate by the student’s IEP Team. Further information about occupational course of study courses can be found at the OCS website maintained by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction: https://ec.ncpublicschools.gov/disability-resources/intellectual-disabilities/occupational-course-of-study
