Eastwick Education provides students the opportunity to receive daily occupational training as part of their junior and/or senior year of high school. Academic subjects are taken at the “home” high school and students are transported to the Shared Time programs for specialized occupational/vocational training. The students are in attendance Monday – Friday from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm. All transportation is provided by the home district.

File an application signed by the parent/guardian and the high school case manager and/or guidance counselor. A copy of the current IEP and evaluations if applicable. We do have regular education students attending our programs.
