The Transition School (TS) is a one-year college preparatory program offered through the Robinson Center for Young Scholars at the University of Washington. TS prepares students to enter the University as fully matriculated undergraduates via the Early Entrance Program (EEP). This is not a dual enrollment program; students leave the K-12 school system to enter Transition School. Students apply during their 8th grade year and begin TS the following fall. Each year, a small cohort of students are accepted from a larger applicant pool. To be successful in this intensive learning experience, candidates need to demonstrate academic achievement, a scholarly aptitude, and self-motivation.
