Guiding vulnerable students back to the classroom
Our Transitional Programs excel at re-engaging students in their education by helping them overcome behavioral, social, emotional, and academic challenges in their lives. Regardless of why they struggle, we believe every student has the desire to succeed—in school and in life—and it is our mission to provide them with the opportunity and support to do so.
Transitional Programs serve middle and high school students who:
- were removed from their comprehensive school for serious behavioral infractions,
- are often years behind in coursework, and
- risk not matriculating or graduating on time.
Transitioning students back to home schools with the ability to tackle challenges
Our approach for Transitional Programs starts by building meaningful relationships with each student to understand their individual needs, challenges, and strengths while providing care, support, and counseling to address the often broad and significant challenges our students grapple with outside of school. We help our students develop coping and problem-solving skills as well as identify and implement solutions to help them focus on learning. When students feel safe, secure, protected, and loved, they become empowered to take charge of their future and can begin to fulfill their learning potential.

Transitional school Student testimony:
“Growing up in a single parent home we had a choice, streets or education. I know a few people that took the streets and are never coming home. That was my motivation to get my act together.”
