For parents and students alike, transition out of high school can be an anxious time. However, with the appropriate support system, students with learning differences can attend college, discover their interests, and find meaningful employment.
In partnership with the College of Marin, Star Academy's Post-High School program is designed to support students ages 18 to 22 with learning differences in the areas of education, employment and life skills. The program is open to graduates from Star Academy and other area high schools.
Our program is located at the College of Marin’s campus and is staffed by a team that includes a Speech and Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, and Multi-sensory Language Arts specialists; as well as a Transitions Counselor, and teaching assistants. Students also work closely with the College of Marin’s Student Assistance Services (SAS) counseling team.
Highlights of the program include:
- Supported College Experience at College of Marin
- Assistive Technology
- Speech and Occupational Therapy support
- Counseling and Case Management
- Transition Preparation
- Community Training
- Independent Living Skills
- Linkage to outside agencies for vocational support and training
The program runs throughout the school year, following the College of Marin schedule. Students and their families are responsible for transportation to and from the College and home.
