The StepUP Transition Center is a community based, full-day program for special needs students who have graduated high school with a modified diploma. The students engage in work experience, job shadowing, internships, independent living skills, community access and adaptive PE. The philosophy of the Transition Program is “Where do you want to be when you turn 21, and how can we help you get there?” We also work hard to help students connect with all the agencies for which they may qualify for services after they turn 21.
