Transition Program

Pepin Academies Transition is a comprehensive individualized program of vocationally based training for young adults, ages 18-22, who have learning or learning-related disabilities. With deferment of a high school diploma, our Transition Program provides life and job training skills through hands-on experiences to explore various career pathways. This program is state funded and is provided at no cost to the student.
In addition to classroom and community-based instruction for career exploration, we provide classes for social emotional functioning skills, self-determination and self-advocacy skills, employability, and independent functioning skills for adulthood. Various pre-vocational experiences allow our students to have real work training with ongoing support and supervision from our Job Coaches, ESE Teacher and Transition Director.
