The Transition Academy

The Transition Academy (TTA) is a disability college and career preparation organization based in Kansas City, Missouri. We partner with high schools  to make economic inclusion a reality for youth with disabilities in the Kansas City area, especially for young people of color who have historically been failed by systems.

Thank you for your interest in joining The Transition Academy!

Meet the Founder

The Transition Academy was founded by Kim Riley, a parent determined to make sure students with disabilities get to explore college and career options after high school. And if the option doesn’t exist, let’s create it together. Watch the video to be introduced to Kim and her son.
