Join The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute for a tour of the Garden State Pathways Program at Camden County College. Students will visit the campus and learn about the different aspects of a college experience, while families learn about the Garden State Pathways Program and its educational, vocational and campus life supports.
The Garden State Pathways Program is a post-secondary, transitional program sponsored by Camden County College in Blackwood and is designed for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The program serves students 18 years of age or older who are eligible for or received IDEA funding and are interested in learning a work-related skill, as well as enhancing their independence. For students who prefer to remain under the IDEA entitlement until age 21, they may enter the program after meeting all high school requirements, despite not having accepted their official diploma. After completing all required courses and work experiences in this two-year program, students receive a certificate of Postsecondary Studies (CPS) from Camden County College.
