Families dramatically influence the degree to which children are engaged in school and how they identify themselves as learners. Transition programs enable parents to gain confidence in guiding and monitoring their child’s educational and social development during the transition year to middle and high school so the child is prepared for, and ultimately successful after high school. “Transition to Middle School” and “Transition to High School” provide interactive lessons about the importance of education, adolescent social development, academic success strategies and college preparation.
