ITC - About Us
The International Transition Center (ITC) opened in August 2016 to serve English Language Learners, grades 8-12, who are students with limited or interrupted formal education (SLIFE). The middle school's program of study seeks to accelerate the development of English proficiency and math skills to enable students to graduate within four years of entering high school. The high school's program of study seeks to accelerate the development of English proficiency, math skills, and the necessary career skills to enable students to transition to the workforce and/or adult educational opportunities. The International Transition Center (ITC) currently has sites at Berkmar HS, Central Gwinnett HS, Discovery HS, Duluth HS, Meadowcreek HS, and Norcross HS.
International Transition Center students will attain proficiency in English and other Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) to enter high school or begin their careers.
The mission of the International Transition Center is to recognize and build upon the strengths of each unique English Language Learner and provide explicit instruction to leverage each student’s strengths.
