Heartland Academy for Learning Opportunities (HALO)

The HALO program provides access to higher education for students with intellectual disabilities who are interested in continuing their education in a supportive yet challenging learning environment.

HALO students receive a first-rate educational experience as well as exposure to various social and academic enrichment opportunities by working with Heartland faculty, the student body, and community volunteers. Heartland's HALO Program has been recognized as a Comprehensive Transition and Postsecondary (CTP) Program by the U.S. Department of Education, allowing eligible students working toward the Certificate of Achievement in Life Skills Development to apply for federal financial aid in the form of Pell Grants, SEOG Funds and College Work Study.

Heartland is only one of two organizations in Illinois with this exemplary designation.
