Aware that many of our graduates are first-generation college students, the College Transition Program is designed to help students transition successfully from high school to college and aims to ensure that all of our students are provided with the necessary information and assistance needed to reach their post-secondary goals. Through the program, College Transition Specialists work closely with PSJAhigh school seniors and their Financial Aid Officers in high school to ensure that they have completed all of their necessary tasks such as applying to college, completing their financial aid applications and ensuring that they are cleared for awarding.  Once in college, the Specialists are able to provide additional support to better ensure their persistence and completion of their degrees.
