The Youth in Transition School provides a quality, all encompassing, educational program dedicated to addressing the needs of diverse learners. It is through this program that students develop the content knowledge, skills, attitudes, and competencies that will assist them in reaching their full potential as life-long learners and productive citizens. Through this comprehensive program, children and youth with disabilities have access to the appropriate services and educational opportunities to which they are entitled under federal and state laws.

Middle School Program

Youth in Transition’s Middle School program serves grades six to eight. Students focus on acquiring academic skills in the main content areas which include Reading and Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Youth in Transition follows the Maryland State Curriculum and those of several local school systems. Students rotate through special subject areas such as Art and Physical Education. The Middle School program also includes the option for experiences in our Vocational Program.

High School Program

Youth in Transition provides students with academic, vocational, specials courses, and elective programming that meet requirements for a high school diploma or certificate of completion. Youth in Transition follows the Maryland State Curriculum and those of several local school systems to provide a comprehensive educational experience. Included in this program are various vocational trades intended to produce post-secondary success and positive outcomes after the student has exited the program. These vocational offerings (described on the “Vocational Programs” page) provide students with practical experiences not offered in any other nonpublic school setting in Maryland.
