High School - A community-based educational program using a hands on approach with an emphasis on a project based high school curriculum. Our Student Members are invited to “do the work” of belonging through a distinctive personal and relational curriculum called the Journey of Belonging.

Faculty believe belonging to a community is at the heart of learning. The HUB aspires to be a welcoming, joyful center where interactive relationship practice is central and where each Student Member is accepted and cherished just as they are.  At The HUB, social relationships will flourish, academic growth will continue, and professional and employability skills are taught and practiced.

 

Faculty work with each Student Member to develop their own Journey of Belonging plan to commit to practicing growth in the areas of competence, independence, care, and membership.

The HUB High School schedule is August- May, Monday through Friday, 7:30AM – 2:30PM.

Aspire Accessories
 

The HUB Houston is proud to add another outstanding program to our Employability offerings for the neurodiverse community. Aspire Accessories is a work transition program that grew out of the need of one parent to find equitable and meaningful work for her Autistic son. The program provides a solution to what is known as the “services cliff” - the result of our neurodiverse population aging out of supported services in school-based environments.

Aspire Accessories’ mission to inspire and empower neurodiverse individuals to reach their full potential is inline with the philosophy of The HUB and we are excited to join forces and make an even more impactful difference in the workplace.

Our program schedule is flexible to fit individual Artisan’s needs. We have various full-time and part-time options. Please contact admissions@thehubhouston.org for more information.
