At The Independence Academy, we value growth and strive to assist all of our students in achieving their adult-living goals. Those goals may include attending a four-year college or university, attending community college or obtaining job training and successful employment.

As part of our transition program, students complete select Indiana high school courses that not only count towards graduation requirements, but also help to educate and expose them to real-world situations needed for success beyond high school. In addition, students participate in real-life experiences in the community. The purpose of the program is to prepare students for independent living — whatever that may look like for them.

The courses taught for transition classes are regularly evaluated to ensure students’ current and postgraduate needs are being met. The following transition classes are taught on a rotating basis:

  • Personal Financial Responsibility
  • Interpersonal Relationships
  • Consumer Economics
  • Preparing for College and Career
  • Digital Applications and Responsibility
  • Adult Roles and Responsibilities
  • Health and Wellness
