The Brooklyn Transition Center (BTC) is dedicated to providing quality instructional experiences in the most inclusive environment available which empowers our students to become independent, productive members of society and share fully in the community life. The commitment of BTC is exemplified by the dedication of its staff, involvement of parents, and the vital linkages with social agencies and the business communities. Through an integrated, thematic instructional program rich in the arts and technology, we strive to maintain a supportive, nurturing environment in which students can achieve personal, academic and vocational success. We create and implement programs that provide our students with the opportunity to obtain the highest of standards. We continue to redefine our school by adding instruction in Video Making and Editing, Cosmetology, Graphic Arts and Technology, Culinary Arts, Auto Shop, Security Guard Certification, and Home Health Aide. The BTC Academy after-school program, designed by teachers with student input, expands even further our efforts at standards-raising instruction.
