Boarding a bus

Tell me and I'll forget;

Show me and I may remember;

Involve me and I'll understand.

About Our Programs

The CUSD Post Secondary Programs consists of 2 different programs:

  • The Adult Transition Program (ATP) combines classes and community experiences to help students who received a High School Certificate, ages 18 through 22, with various developmental disabilities, learn the skills necessary for a more productive Independent Life. As part of its emphasis on integrated, community-based instruction, the ATP utilizes local schools, public transportation, businesses, students' apartments and classes at Saddleback Community College to provide appropriate training in meaningful environments. 
  • The Continued Learning Adult Special Services (CLASS) program is designed to meet the special education needs of post-secondary students between the ages of 18-22 who received a High School Certificate, or who are on Diploma Track trying to complete their Adult Education Diploma or GED. Academic support is given to help students to reach their educational goals. Vocational and Communication coaching is also provided to help students become more independent adults in their career and personal lives.
