Where We Shine

Transition School

In a small group setting, students learn a wide variety of usable skills. The supportive environment enables them to discuss personal challenges and make social connections. One-on-one attention gives instructors the opportunity to concentrate on a student’s areas of specific need. Students attend classes one day a week during the school year and receive school credit for their participation. Our instructors coordinate with public school teachers to provide support for each student’s future plans and personal goals.

Eligibility and Cost

The UDS Transition School is designed for high school juniors and seniors. Student selection is based on public school recommendations, as well as the student’s individual goals, interests and ability to interact productively within a group structure. Enrollment is at no cost to the student, based upon assessment of the student’s scholarship qualifications.
