Marbridge offers Abilities-Centered Training (ACT) based on the theory of multiple intelligences. Our program begins with the expectation that each individual is able – our job is help determine existing abilities and encourage the next step in growth.

Unlike traditional education, we do not provide grades or graduation, instead we continue to support the individual through a variety of classes, social opportunities, connections, and education. We offer numerous training opportunities on a trimester basis and adjust our curriculum as needed.

The theory of multiple intelligences defines eight types of intelligences. Our program offers courses to fit those intelligences.
