We’ve Come so Far!

What a year! Triumph Transitions Institute has met so many milestones this year. When we look back at where we started to where we are now, it’s simply amazing.

We started the 2013-2014 school year with one student, little funding and provisionally accredited. This year we increased our enrollment to 5 students, doubled the amount of community support, have been recommended for FULL accreditation for the 2015-2016 school year, graduated our first student, raised enough money to complete this school year, have a donor who has donated $3,000.00 for the upcoming school (2015-2016) that will be matched by Home Depot (that’s $6,000- almost the amount for 1 full tuition for next year), and is now in a position to apply for SB10 funding. WoW!

We are humbled!

The above is enough to be humbled by, but we are most proud of our students. They have worked so hard and have come from such a long way both academically and socially. Some had self-esteem issues on top of academic weaknesses that prevented them from taking their next step into being independent adults who contribute to society. But we bridged the gap from their high school to their next post-secondary step.

We will miss those who will not be returning, but look forward to an awesome school year with those who will be coming back and the next group of students who will be joining us.
