The Gateway Academy Transition Fair is an annual event featuring programs throughout Texas and the U.S. that serve young adults with social and learning differences. Featured programs cater to students for whom college, adult independent living and/or vocational careers are attainable with the proper structure and support. 

Participating programs serve high school graduates aged 18 and up with average to above average IQ. The programs represent educational options for experiential learners, such as trade schools, immersive adult life skills programs, vocational, and certificate courses.

In addition, our Transition Fair features community and 4 year colleges that support students with social and learning differences. Common learning differences addressed by these programs include dyslexia, AD/HD, autism, and mental health challenges.  

Our Transition Fair is free but registration is required to attend!  Everyone is welcome ...educators, students and parents!
