Transfer high schools are non-traditional learning environments for students 16 years or older who have attended high school for at least one year but may have fallen behind in credits towards graduation. Transfer schools do not follow the typical 9-12 grade structure. Instead, students learn at their own pace, usually through online coursework and with the help of a personalized counselor who ensures that they are getting the credits they need to graduate. Students also typically have access to paid internships and career planning.
