Key School and Training Center Announces College At Key in Partnership with Beacon College

A new collegiate experience for students with learning differences will launch in Fort Worth this August. Few college-bound students are ready for college, and students with learning differences sometimes have a more difficult transition. College At Key, a partnership between Key School and Training Center in Fort Worth and Beacon College in Leesburg, FL, is designed to build college success for students with dyslexia, ADHD, and other learning differences.

College At Key is a one-year, post-secondary program for students who have just completed high school or are one year out of high school and have an identified learning difference. The program aims to help complex students improve academic skills, develop study habits, and earn college credit while offering needed support to transition successfully to a four-year university.

“Key School was founded on the idea that all students, regardless of learning disability, are equally able to succeed academically. With the addition of College At Key to our educational offerings, students who may have otherwise thought college was inaccessible will be able to see a path forward. We are honored to partner with Beacon College for the benefit of our unique students who are the true beneficiaries of educational innovation,” says Key School and Training Center Executive Director, Beth Lamb, MANPM, APR.

Key School and Training Center and Beacon College are ideal partners as both organizations embrace a student- and family-centered educational model to support neurodiverse students. College At Key’s post-graduate program is balanced with credit-bearing courses such as College Composition, General Psychology, and United States History to 1877, enrichment courses designed specifically for a student with learning disabilities, and an advising and transition planning approach aimed at helping students prepare for college beyond the

College At Key program. This holistic model was created by Beacon College in 2015 through their College Readiness program. The partnership with Key School is an expansion of their outreach activities.

“As the first four-year accredited university to offer bachelor’s degrees to students with learning disabilities, Beacon College is a competitive institution of higher education in the arts, sciences, business, and technology specifically devoted to the undergraduate preparation and success of students with learning disabilities, ADHD, and other learning differences. In the arena of our mission and focus, Beacon is recognized as one of the foremost American institutions in this undergraduate specialty.”
