What We Do

Unified Champion Schools is a unique education program in PreK – Transition schools (ages 18-22). The program unifies students with and without disabilities through sports and Whole School Engagement. These activities educate students with the skills necessary to sustainably develop school communities that promote inclusion, acceptance and respect for all students.
