With an emphasis on collaboration, problem-solving and communication, our Transition Program prepares students for college, careers and independent living through hands-on, real-life, and work-related experiences.
Freshman & Sophomore Year:
Students explore careers by researching career fields and specific occupations. Students self-reflect on their level of independence and personal interests in their Consumer Skills classes as well as discuss resources available in the community and ways that they can become more responsible and independent both at school and in their personal life.
Students research various working environments as well as the education and training required for fields related to their interests and career goals. Students begin to meet 1:1 with their Transition Counselor to discuss personal educational and career goals, discuss academically appropriate programs, and assist students in determining what program may be a good match.
Students narrow their focus on career, education, and community involvement. They also gain valuable work experience in the Work Study Program. Students and their families continue to work with the Transition Counselor to research appropriate post-high school programs, complete college application packets or explore career opportunities.
