ARA focuses on each student’s current academic standing, his learning style, motivation, progression in therapy, confidence, and what might be happening in the student’s residential life.
This comprehensive insight and our team approach helps inform how we help each student improve academically.
In addition, our students participate in educational field trips to the amazing geological and scientific wonders of Southern Utah. Students are challenged every day to learn in both the traditional classroom setting, as well as through abundant opportunities both on and off campus.
Students in therapeutic boarding schools are frequently deficient in the necessary credits to graduate on time. While enrolled at ARA, students have an opportunity to participate in traditional classes, as well as our credit recovery and GPA repair programs.
With this in mind, in addition to traditional classes and curriculum, ARA also utilizes highly interactive on-line courses. ARA has certified teachers and trained tutors to assist students in helping them catch up, and often get ahead, in their academics.
