LEARN Transition Academy/18-21 Program

The LEARN Transition Academy offers local and regional slots for students 18-21 in a structured and customized program.

This program is designed for young adults that have completed high school requirements for graduation, but need additional programming to prepare for transition into adult life. The community based program provides a curriculum tailored to these moderately to severely disabled students and seeks to engage the participants by meaningful and hands on activities that are consistent with their ability level. Individuals will develop skills in the areas of career and life management. Components of the program include community based life skill instruction, work settings, and social skill instruction. The amount of time each student may spend in any setting will be determined by his or her needs.
