Highlights The Director's Corner

The Transition Academy at Mount Saint John offers a strengths-based, individualized learning environment with high academic rigor, solid vocational preparation, and independent living skills. Students earn credits/stipends while working on campus or at jobs within the community. Our extended day and extended year programming allows for additional credit earnings and certification opportunities.

Transition skills including college and career readiness, health and wellness, independent living and community engagement are taught through hands-on experiences, individualized instruction, and community-based activities. Students spend time working with professionals, learning trades, completing certifications, earning stipends, and managing personal finances.

All individual transition goals are based on a comprehensive transition assessment. Transition goals are monitored on a weekly basis by the students and are updated as needed based on a data-review process with the student’s support team.
