Vocational Program

  • The Vocational Department at Hillcrest School is made up of Vocational Agriculture and Work Study Instruction.  The focus of Vocational is to achieve maximum independence in post-school living within the individual student’s ability. Students are exposed to employability and home-living skills.  There is a focus on social skills instruction during work, classroom activities, and leisure times.  Growth towards these goals are documented to include:


    • Wearing appropriate clothes for each different work site
    • Locating materials, tools and supplies needed for a task
    • Practicing safety rules
    • Listening carefully to instruction
    • A focus on the task at hand without being distracted
    • Using appropriate social skills with peers and supervisors
    • Showing respect to others
    • Performing a task to the best of student’s ability
