    PACTT Transition Program

    PACTT's Transition Program is an ISBE-approved nonpublic school program (2009).

    The Transition Program aims to continue the PACTT mission with a specific emphasis on providing intensive personalized education and support for students as they enter adult life.

    The goal of the PACTT Transition Program is to help each young adult become as independent as possible and be included in his/her community to the greatest extent possible. To promote student independence and success in the community, the PACTT Transition Program has a strong focus in the areas of self-determination, vocational skills, independent living skills, socialization and communication skills and community participation.

    Our 3:2 student:staff ratio supports students in becoming more active participants in community activities and in developing the skills necessary for increased independence in their homes and communities as they transition into post-school life.
