OPEN HOUSE

Because of COVID, our January session will be virtual. Our February and March sessions will be determined based on the climate, but more than likely will be virtual as well. 
Our mission is to provide an innovative college experience for young adults with intellectual differences, while providing transformational learning experiences to university students, college educators, and community leaders.   
During our open houses, students and families will get the chance to meet with OCT staff, gain a better understanding of the philosophy of the program, learn about what a typical day at OCT looks like, and hear from current students and parents. Our open houses will last about 2 hours. 
Please email us at oct@arcjacksonville.org or call 904-620-3890 if you have any other questions about our program or our open houses. We look forward to meeting you!

Who Are We? 

ARC Jacksonville logoThe Arc Jacksonville (Arc) and UNF partnered to create this innovative program, to provide young adults with intellectual differences the unique opportunity of having a transformational college experience as an integral part of their transition to independence.

Students are mentored in academic, social, and recreation activities through mentoring programs with UNF student peers.
