About us

Robbinsdale Transition Center (RTC) is a special education program which serves young adults, ages 18-21, who receive special education services, and need support in transition areas.

Our students have a range of abilities and need assistance in making the transition from school to life in the community. Students are referred to RTC by their high school's individualized education plan (IEP) team.

Academically, students have the opportunity to take classes in money management, reading, habits of wellness in fitness and cooking, health, and social skills.

From a transition perspective, RTC provides opportunities for students to expand their work skills through job training, work experience and soft skills classes. RTC also connects students with vocational rehabilitation services.
