About the Achievement Center at RVCC

The Achievement Center is a Certificate-based post secondary education program for students with intellectual and development disabilities.  This college program is a collaboration with Raritan Valley Community College and The Arc of Hunterdon County. 

The objective of The Achievement Center is to help students transition to college and experience life on RVCC’s campus, while receiving additional support to maximize their success.  Our classes are held in RVCC’s Arts Building.

This post secondary education class format comes in many different forms such as classroom instruction to work on a students learning models and academic building blocks.  These building blocks may include critical reading; communication skills; writing essays and research papers; study habits, and time management of assignments/deadlines.

In addition, The Achievement Center puts equal importance on the social component of college life in regards to student/faculty interaction; self Advocacy with college resources; building friendships; and navigating life on campus.
