College Transitions are programs that allow a student who already possesses a high school diploma to brush up on skills in order to gain entrance into college. If you are having trouble passing college entrance exams, or the college has told you to take adult education classes to bring you up to entrance standards, you need the College Transitions program. There is NO fee for this program. We are working remotely over Zoom but also doing essential testing in-person and safely, with lots of support materials available. Contact us today to get started!
