University Transition Program
One of the Best Kept Secrets in Education.
-- Transition Parent (2012)

Initiated in 1993 by the Vancouver School Board in partnership with The University of British Columbia and supported as a Provincial Resource Program by the BC Ministry of Education (1995), University Transition Program serves BC Adolescents ages 13-15. The two-year liberal arts preparation for early entrance to university promotes high standards of scholarship, a pre-university culture of collaboration, mutual respect, and support, encouraging leadership, global citizenship, environmental stewardship, and interdisciplinary career pathways focusing talents and abilities on service to others and contributing to positive futures of all people and all life. Acclaimed philosopher Hannah Ahrendt (1906-1976) described the work of education was to keep the conversation going. Welcome to the overlapping conversations of students, graduates, parents, and educators sharing experiences of educational innovation; personalized education cohorts, and accelerated learning as pathways for excellence and success.
