What Is the Functional Academics Program?

Mohawk Trails is one of four Functional Academics Program (FAP) elementary sites in Carmel. Students in FAP are provided a unique learning environment with differentiated learning opportunities necessary to develop academic competencies in core subjects in addition to communication, social, functional, and vocational skills critical for independent and productive life pursuits.  The students benefit from a narrowed focus on core content standards, additional support, a highly structured classroom environment, and a higher level of repetition and reinforcement for concept/skill mastery across environments.   Academic instruction in Mathematics and Language Arts is delivered in small groups or individually,  and participation in Social Studies and Science instruction is provided in the General Education classes.   FAP also offers the students exposure to a variety of  vocational learning experiences to facilitate generalization and application of learned skills in the natural environment.
