Our son was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. He is thriving and learning at a phenomenal rate. They really are college preparatory. Had my son not attended MCP, he would mostly likely received a high school certificate not a diploma. He is learning skills to succeed in college and every day life. Thank you MCP.
