Student Life

Transitions places a great emphasis on providing students with opportunities to become involved in and out of the classroom. Through our enrichment programs and leadership opportunities, students can develop various skills and qualities that will serve them academically and personally.

Leadership Training & Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors meet weekly for a "working lunch" to collaborate on projects to support community building. Through this program, students develop executive function skills through project organization, development, prioritization, and completion. Students also improve communication skills by creating relationships, presenting ideas and initiatives to the larger student body, and welcoming new students.
