Youth in Transition School is appropriate for male and female students in grades 6–8, grades 9-12, and/or ages 11-21 who have been determined through the IEP process to have an emotional disability, intellectual disability, and/or autism. Students admitted to the school require a small, highly-structured individualized class and school setting.

In many cases, students who are referred to Youth in Transition have continuously experienced a lack of success due to behavior problems, clinical issues, and learning difficulties. These factors have often led to frustration, lack of motivation, and negative attitudes towards education. Youth in Transition is the first place where many students find academic success.

The admissions process for Youth in Transition begins with referrals from a school system and/or human service agency requesting placement for adolescents who require this type of educational program. Admission is determined on a case-by-case basis by the school’s administration team.

The school coordinates interviews with the youth and his/her family. Following this review, the Individual Education Plan (IEP) team determines if the school is effectively able to plan and implement an appropriate program for that youth.

If the student is enrolled in the school, the parent receives a copy of the school’s behavioral management plan, the school schedule, the school calendar, and a copy of the Student and Parent Handbook. For more information, please contact us: 410.944.9994
