The Transition Program provides mid-trimester, incoming students with a unique opportunity to earn course credits towards their high school graduation. Enrollment in this program is temporary and begins with a three to five-day orientation period. Following orientation, students are enrolled in a combination of online and direct instruction courses. At the start of the next trimester, students then integrate into Frontier High School’s regular 5-period day. Students should take advantage of this opportunity by being productive, efficient, respectful, and determined participants while enrolled in the Transition Program.
