Our Program

Life College is a two year program with the flexibility to best fit the needs of each individual student and their families. Some students may spend more, or less, than one year in the First Year program or the Second Year Program.

First Year

Classes are held at Stanbridge University campus in Irvine, CA. Our class sizes are small and personal to best provide the necessary support for all students.

The Life College internships are within automotive dealerships that teach students transferable job skills such as office administration (filing, scanning and data entry), and warehousing (inventory, stocking, and order fulfillment) while demonstrating the soft skills necessary to maintain gainful employment.

Second Year

At the end of the 1st year, an Individualized Transition Plan (ITP) is developed and implemented starting the 2nd year. This plan may include attending Irvine Valley College with the full support of Life College assistants and tutors, or transitioning to employment with the support of a Life College Job Coach.
