Welcome to STRIVE Functional Academics. Students work on a variety of real life practical math, reading and writing skills in class. Math skills include practice in money, budgeting, banking, calendar and schedule, time and measurement. Students read the newspaper regularly to find answers to daily living questions and questions about current event and general knowledge concepts. Students also visit the local library to develop a lifelong interest in reading. Students practice completing written and on line job applications in class and also work on reading schedules, bills, directions, labels and recipes for life skills practice.
