IDEAL Program

Igniting the Dream of Education and Access at Lipscomb

Vision: IDEAL provides young adults with IDD access to opportunities for growth and independence that promote inclusion, belonging and contribution, which can lead to life-changing outcomes, thus impacting students, families and the community.

Who: Students between the ages of 18-26 who have completed high school and have a documented intellectual or developmental disability (ID/DD) are encouraged to apply.

What: IDEAL is a two year, non-residential certificate program that is designed to encourage and support students with ID/DD to experience college as their peers do. IDEAL students take classes, go to sporting events, complete internships, eat in the cafeteria, attend chapel and enjoy just being a college student.

WhenIDEAL is accepting applications NOW for the 2017-2018 school year. The application window closes December 16, 2016. To apply, click on the admissions tab.
