Matthias Academy is a nonprofit adult day program coming to southeast Wisconsin. Matthias Academy will serve adults with mild to severe disabilities, specialized medical needs, behaviors and mild to severe autism from Illinois and Wisconsin.
Matthias Academy will provide a student centered program for adults to learn, work, and socialize. Classes will be offered in several areas of study, such as Health and Wellness, Culinary Arts, Meteorology, Fashion and Design, Marketing, Communication and Digital Media, Horticulture, Accounting and Business Management, all tailored to individual learning levels. Adults will have the opportunity to work within the gift shop, bakery and bike shop of Matthias Academy and in the prep parts of those community inviting stores. In our first facility, there will be a Bakery, Gift and Garden Center and Bike Shop. We will highly encourage the involvement of the surrounding community to come into our facility to shop and visit, we will also encourage the involvement of local schools and local colleges to volunteer and help!
Times of recreation and leisure will be guided, exercise and mobility will be required multiple times daily to maintain health and wellness. Independence will be strongly encouraged and parent and student guided goals will be carried out throughout daily operations.
