We offer more than classroom instruction—because that’s what our students need.
For many students, the barriers to academic success lie outside of what happens in the classroom. We help them address those challenges to their education through individual and group counseling, drug/alcohol treatment and prevention, teen parenting education, and early child development.
Provided onsite and woven into our students’ educational foundation, our therapeutic approach prepares our students for their future and for success.
