The educational program offers a unique emphasis on addressing academic, social/emotional, and behavioral needs 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.

Our student-centered approach supports the development of skills to address significant delays in socioemotional development, while remediating academic skills and providing grade-appropriate instruction leading to a NYS Diploma. The goal is to prepare students to successfully reintegrate into their local public school, the workforce, or post high school educational settings.
