Equipping Students with Real-World Skills

Catapult Learning’s Transition Services prepare students for life beyond graduation, either in postsecondary school or in the workforce. Each school’s Transition team works with students to apply skills acquired in the classroom to real-world settings. Through this process, students have the ability to identify interests and explore aptitudes through both on-campus and off-campus pursuits that promote self-reliance and self-confidence.

The main goal of our Transition Services program is to find the ideal balance for each student between independence and interaction in the workplace as well as society at large, so that they can secure gainful employment following their schooling and lead productive, responsible, and fulfilling lives.

Equipping Students with Real-World Skills

Through these programs, students acquire necessary skills and competencies to live independently and pursue gainful employment. Through Individualized courses we focus on mastery of basic academic and computing skills, plus practical daily activities like cooking, cleaning, and self-care. Focusing on behavioral and social skills, we promote social-emotional growth through group dynamics, mentoring, roleplaying, and behavioral modeling.

In collaboration with outside service agencies, we work to ensure a smooth transition to adult services, including securing employment, applying learned skills to real-life settings, and assisted living facilitates.
