WVU Country Roads Program To Host Virtual Open House

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

The Country Roads Program is an on-campus program designed for individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities. The goal of the program is to prepare students with disabilities for independence by providing academic courses, social engagement and real-world work experiences. Students will live in a shared residential housing arrangement, participate in social activities across campus and receive career education and training.

Current students have shared some thoughts on their time in the Country Roads Program.

Cole says, "The program allows me to go to college and learn how to be responsible and live on my own. I have had the opportunity to make friends."

Sadie says, “It [Country Roads] can help me learn and get more experience with the things I need to open my own daycare and be a successful adult."

The Country Roads Program will soon open the admissions process to select the cohort for the 2021-2022 academic year. You can visit the open house held online on February 23, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. and again from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. to learn more about the program, admissions process, curriculum, students and more! Please register in advance to attend by visiting https://cedwvu.wufoo.com/forms/quf4rxj1gmk93j/. If you are unable to attend, the webinar will be recorded and available on the Country Roads website for future viewing.
