About Our Continuing Education for Adults with Disabilities in NJ

Generic, regimented day programs don’t provide choices or encourage intellectual growth beyond the public school system. ACE, a unique type of day program structure, allows both recent graduates and older adults with developmental disabilities to learn new material and build on existing skills in small classrooms.

ACE Curriculum

The ACE curriculum offered by CAU aligns with NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards, offering students a week of scheduled groups that balance structure and choice.

Students can take as many courses as they wish and in any combination.

Groups are subject to availability. Students may begin attending classes mid-session and coursework may be adjusted at any time.

Types of Courses Offered

Our program has options that appeal to every type of student. Courses offered include: reading, math, science, music, theater, media production, visual art, computers, self-help, history and more. Ask us about our current schedule!

The artwork created by CAU Academy of Continuing Education (ACE) students is in part made possible by funds from the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs, a partner of the NJ State Council on the Arts.

Skills Students Learn in Our Continuing Education Groups

Our small sessions include individual attention so members can develop skills such as:

  • Personal finance
  • Communication and problem-solving
  • Literacy and critical thinking
  • Fine motor skills
  • Self-awareness and confidence building
