Our two-year complete plan is built on a strong foundation of self-sufficiency and financial responsibility. The program moves from these core independence skills to support work readiness, acquisition, and retention. College application, enrollment, and support for students is also available in this program. This is our primary program and is suitable for most individuals who demonstrate the desire to live independently, but lack skills or maturity to make the transition.
ADVANCE Gap Year:
Students are qualified for these accelerated transition programs through application and deferment of college acceptance, or completion of the Gateway Academy Transition Program. These are immersive plans based on the understanding that the student is transitioning to a college or university and is focused on building independent living skills while increasing maturity through service and leadership opportunities. A student enrolled in this program is considered to be a participant in the two-year program until their first evaluation in the program (90 days of accelerated progress).
Plus Supplemental Programs:
An extension to the ADVANCE Immersive Transition Program allowing qualified students to receive college support or workplace coaching at a lower program fee. A student may apply and qualify for one of these services without participating in one of the other programs or may continue in these programs after completing the ADVANCE immersive transtion program.
