Our Transition program is for students approximately 14–22 years old, working towards a Certificate of Completion. Classes are organized by considering the age, social skills, communication skills, academic abilities, self-help and daily living skills of each student. Our functional curriculum includes the following:

  • Functional Academics – in the areas of Language, Social Studies, Science and Mathematics. Learning is enhanced by our Academic Movement Program, which combines academics goals with music and movement.
  • Specialized Health and PE – including adaptive bicycle riding, swimming, social games and sports
  • Life Skills – including cooking, shopping, housekeeping, personal hygiene and other activities of daily living.
  • Vocational Skills – including the development of sustained attention and motor sequencing, micro-entrepreneurship, retail, gardening maintenance, sales, construction and production activities.
  • Community-based Instruction (CBI) – Students receive daily direct insurrection both on campus and within the community. Providing regular instruction in a variety of settings ensures that student learning generalizes (or occurs) across multiple environments. Some examples of community-based activities include (but are not limited to): public libraries, recreation centers, restaurants, stores, parks, theaters, bowling alleys and other local businesses for recreational, academic, social and vocational experiences.
  • Music and Art – Our music and art programs are designed to reinforce the greater learning and behavioral objectives through music and art.
