Sharon Alexander, Executive Director shared “We are grateful to our supporters who will enable us to fill a gap in available services in the community for adolescents with neurodiversity. Unicorn Village Academy, unlike most traditional high school models, allows students the rare opportunity to master their “life-skills” and vocational abilities through a variety of community experiences and internships.” Opening of Unicorn Village Academy is August 2013. …Lady Luck Awaits!
