Job Preparedness Program



At Blue Jay Academy we are invested in the future of your child(ren) and we are excited to offer our Excel Transition Work Program to our Blue Jay students. This program is extremely vital for youth with special needs and disabilities who want to be gainfully employed. It is critical that they receive services to ensure they are adequately prepared and ready to adapt to the competitive workplace environment.


The goal of the Excel Transition Work Program is to prepare each student for employment. We will accomplish this by providing real life work experiences combined with training to help them make a successful transition from school life to a productive adult life. Throughout the school year, the students selected for this program will work on a variety of skills that focus on things like team building, work place safety, interviewing and much more.


In turn, we will provide students with a transferable vocational education and relevant social skills development. Ultimately our focus will be to offer our students real world, hands-on training through a unique opportunity to explore a number of different career paths.
