The Academy for Adult Learning (AAL) was a 4-semester certificate program which provided students with intellectual disabilities an authentic college experience while developing vocational skills and career aspirations. Each student was matched with a mentor - a matriculated Temple student, and engaged in an on-campus internship.
The Academy for Adult Learning has been replaced by Leadership & Career Studies.

Academy students and mentors in action.
New students and new mentors learn several words in Paley Library using American Sign Language during their AAL orientation. Kendall, a new Academy student, asks: "What is this building?" The group signs: "library," "typing," "computer," "read," "quiet," and "book."
