Summer Graduate Transition Centers

DCSD's Student Advancement Department will pilot Summer Transition Centers during the month of June. The centers will provide support for students graduating in the Class of 2017 (or recent graduates) but unsure of next steps for college. We want to help these students make a smooth transition to their college campus in the fall!

The attached document lists all Summer Transition Center locations, dates, and times.
