Half-Day CBL/Transition Option
Ordinarily, this would be a full-day program, however, our half-day CBI/Transition option is geared toward the student who cannot, or will not, attend a full day program. Typically, they are students who have fulfilled all, or most, of the academic requirements for a NJ High School Diploma before their 21st birthday. We help them to develop independent living skills, employment skills, social skills, and other areas that require remediation. The goal is to give them the tools needed to be productive, happy citizens.
