Located at CJR’s Litchfield campus, the Cable Academic and Vocational Education Center (CAVEC) serves Connecticut boys referred by local public schools throughout the state and students enrolled in CJR’s short-term residential programs on its Litchfield campus.
Regular, special, and vocational education, as well as enhancement classes and transition related services are provided.
Although most of our students have an Individualized Education Program, some students do not require special education services.
We understand everyone learns differently.
Each student learns at his own pace; possesses different levels of previous knowledge; and reads, writes, and performs mathematics at various skill levels. To accommodate these differences, modes of instruction and methods of assessment are different for each individual.
We know the right environment is key.
CJR provides students with a variety of educational services in the least restrictive environment possible. To ensure the development of requisite skills for school success, students are assigned to academic classes based on their skill levels and abilities.
We know family is essential to success.
CJR also helps parents by providing support, discussion groups, and advocacy.
We maintain a strong connection to child’s current district.
CJR keeps the lines of communication open and works collaboratively with the child’s school district.
Long-term success is our goal.
Development of the requisite skills for school success and for transition to postsecondary opportunities is the ultimate goal of each student’s education plan. Transition services are also provided to assist students in developing skills that will help them become independent and self-reliant.

If you feel like your life is not that great and that you won’t be able to progress in a positive way, just remember, I felt like that once too, yet I am graduating, going to college, and the path I never thought I could tread and make to the end is now all behind me.
