Massachusetts Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Initiative (MAICEI)

The MAICEI program at Cape Cod Community College is a fully inclusive postsecondary program for adult high school students (aged 18–22), with intellectual/developmental disabilities.

A Building Block for the Future

  • The mission of the program is to provide college experiences to increase self-determination, dignity and worth
  • Students in the MAICEI program share the same experiences as their college aged peers in the areas of academics and socialization
  • With additional supports in place, CCCC MAICEI students may enroll in courses for credit or as an audit experience, attend clubs and campus events, and socialize with peers
  • The program has been tremendously successful as students gain independence, further develop communication skills, and are actively engaged in creating their lives
