College and Career Transition Department

Providing our NJ students with the tools and resources needed to prepare for life after graduation

Sage Day Strengthens Focus on Personalized Transition Planning

Our job is not complete until each student has a good transition plan for life after graduation. Parents are the first to be concerned about their child’s next steps in life: transitions from preschool to elementary school, elementary to middle school, middle to high school, high school to… Well that last one isn’t so easy and can be stressful for student and parents. Transitions can be a difficult part of life, but are made easier with the right thought and preparation. Eighty percent of Sage Day graduates go on to college. At the same time, there is growing realization that college may not be the best next step for everyone. We are excited about providing this individualized service to our students and about expanding options for our sending districts who rely on Safe Day to provide a strong and innovative therapeutic approach for our students.

The Sage Day College and Career Transition Department Will…

  • Provide each student with an individualized and specific plan for transition upon graduation.
  • Assist college-bound students in researching, applying to and selecting the college that is most appropriate and best suited for long-term success.
  • Provide students and parents with knowledge of alternatives to a traditional four-year college, including associate’s degree options, technical and vocational schools, and specialized certification programs.
  • Work with each student to explore potential careers based on his or her interests, skills, and abilities.
