Alfaretta Transition Program

Students ages 18-21 who are served by an IEP can join the Alfaretta Transition Program to ease their transition into the workforce. They gain valuable workplace experience and expand their access to community organizations after they graduate while continuing to receive support along the way. Currently housed at Lakes High School, the program connects students with resources, teaches essential life skills and give students support as they transition to college, trade school or into the workforce.
