Transition Program

The L.I.F.E. transition program is for students 14-21 years old that are best served by working towards more individualized goals rather than traditional academic goals.

All transition students are assessed using the Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS) to help inform the creation of individualized goals for their planning document.

Individualized Goals

True success starts with determining what is really important to students and their families.
