Comprehensive Transition and Post-Secondary (CTP) Programs

A CTP program is a special program of study that some colleges offer. It's designed for students with learning or social issues, and gives them extra support.

It includes services like:

  • Academic advising

  • A chance to take some specialized classes and some typical classes

  • Internships or job training

  • Social skills mentoring
