Cable Academic and Vocational Education Center (CAVEC)
The Cable Academic and Vocational Education Center (CAVEC) is a private, special education school that focuses on empowering students to develop their skills and become lifelong learners. Each student’s abilities are assessed and curricula are personalized according to their Individual Education Plan (IEP). The ultimate goal of each education plan is the development of requisite skills for school success and transition to post-secondary opportunities.
The Cable Education and Vocational Education Center for boys in Litchfield is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and licensed by the Connecticut State Department of Education as a private, special education program with enrollment limited to 74 students.
The new Cable Education and Vocational Education Center for girls in Bristol is currently welcoming students between the ages of 9 and 21. By statute, a private school must be successfully operational for one year prior to applying for a license as an approved private special education program. CJR anticipates receiving a CSDE license in September 2018. Once CJR receives the initial operating license, a candidacy application will be submitted to the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
The mission of the Cable Academic and Vocational Education Center is to provide all students with a supportive educational environment which nurtures their ability to maximize their individual potential and strengthen their social and academic experiences, now and throughout their lifetimes.
