We actively collaborate with a student’s extended support team, and welcome professionals to spend time with a student on campus if beneficial. MCP does not provide behavioral or mental health services. Students who benefit most from a therapeutic learning environment and have a primary behavioral or emotional diagnosis are not adequately supported at MCP.
MCP staff receive between one and five hours of professional training in learning differences weekly. While we do not provide direct therapeutic supports, we provide a safe and nurturing community where students can learn, be themselves and mature at their own pace.
On staff, our Director of Student Services Kris Neustadter has more than 20 years of experience as a special education professional. Executive Director Jay Dunlap has spent 20 years teaching and developing programs to support students with special learning needs. Jay and Kris work with the student, his or her extended support team, and MCP staff to develop a comprehensive and personalized learning plan.
