Educational Services for Youth

The program offers a unique emphasis on addressing both the academic and behavioral problems which have interfered with the student’s progress in school. A highly structured program with a success-based philosophy surrounds our students with the resources and support needed to function effectively in the classroom.

The focus is on remediating academic skills, providing grade-appropriate instruction leading to a NYS Diploma, and developing age-appropriate classroom behaviors. The goal is to prepare students to successfully reintegrate into their local public school, the workforce, or post high school educational settings.
