The purpose of this site is to consolidate transition related information for Assets students and their families. While there are many paths to success, the majority of Assets graduates attend college after graduation, so much of this information is college oriented. Post-secondary institutions include community colleges, four year colleges in Hawaii and on the mainland, art schools, and trade programs. Alternatives to college are also addressed by offering resume tips, links to information about gap year programs and military.
This page is where I will post regular reminders for juniors and seniors, and will pose questions to the community for group discussion.
Please complete transcript requests a minimum of 3 weeks prior to admission deadlines to insure timely delivery. The form for download is available on this page, along with helpful information about your records.
