The Beekman Center has been in operation as a part of the Lansing School District since 1968. We currently service students with Moderate Cognitive Impairments, Severe Cognitive Impairments, Severe Multiple Impairments, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Emotionally Impairments. In addition, our Young Adult program provides life skills and transition activities for our Moderately Cognitively Impaired students ages 18-26.

Beekman teaches life skills!

The Beekman Center also houses our Community Based Instruction (CBI) program that gives our young adult students on the job training, as well as providing the students with classes in functional academics and other life skills subjects. The young adult students participate in a full spectrum of electives which may include Special Olympics. At the Beekman Center we acknowledge the holistic nature of the individual child and we provide the assistance needed to help children with special needs achieve their full potential.

This event will be a live, virtual informational event about Lansing SAVE and will have representatives from the community and school district. Lansing SAVE includes all students in the Lansing School District from grades K-6, and is a savings account that helps students save for college/post-secondary education as well as provide financial education to the students throughout their time at Lansing schools. One of the best parts — it’s absolutely free! Have questions before the event? Contact us at lansingsave@msufcu.org. We hope to see you there.
