LOGOS School is dedicated to helping students find hope, healing and a promising future.
We work with our students and their families to develop individualized plans specific to each student’s aspirations for their future. Our goal is to ensure that the work they put in to achieve academic success and therapeutic growth translates into success after they leave LOGOS.
Everyone can benefit from a transition plan that assesses their interests and abilities and explores careers, colleges or training programs. Transition planning helps lessen the anxiety many students feel about their future.
Our Director of Transition Services, Kim Jayne, designs activities that prepare students to move from our program to post-high school life. The activities are based on the student’s needs, preferences, interests and include activities in the following areas.
Transition plans include short-term and long-term employment goals. Entry level jobs are the first exposure to the world of work. Starting with the end in mind is helpful for students to understand the steppingstones towards a long-term employment goal.
- Exploring careers of interest
- Job shadowing/interviewing
Again, short-term and long-term goals are addressed. Beginning with the date for high school graduation and the steps necessary to get there, students begin exploring the credentials and training they need to reach their long term employment goal.
- Researching colleges or trade schools
- Scheduling a campus tour
- Researching scholarships
- Applying to colleges
- Filling out the FASFA
Timelines and the extent to which some students can live independently varies. However, everyone can and should learn to care for themselves and contribute to a household. Learning to advocate for oneself, manage money, and use transportation responsibly is often not a small task.
- Money management
- Recreation and leisure
- Home maintenance
At LOGOS, we know every student deserves the chance to fulfill their own hopes and dreams for a successful future.
