The Transition Program is designed to give grade 8 students a feeling of what Blessed Mother Teresa is about. Three quarters of the students that attend this program are going into grade 9 in September. It is student planned, and student lead. The program offers Math and English classes, complete with high school credits, as well as programs in art and dance. The Focus on Youth employees serve as leaders and role models to the students.
There are different themes each day. For example, on July 12th, 2013, the theme was Hawaiian, and so the leaders and some of the participants dressed in Hawaiian attire while playing indoor and outdoor games for the Activity Day.
