Some boys simply don’t do well in a typical school environment. Behavioral issues lead to bad grades; low self-esteem means more acting out. It’s a vicious cycle. Parents of such boys often look to alternative education options for solutions.
Boys labeled “problem children” are not usually inherently bad. You can get them out of the situation that’s causing them to fail, provide the support they need, and turn their lives around before the problem becomes lifelong. At Ashcreek Academy, we provide that kind of specialized environment for boys ages 14 – 17 1/2 upon admission.
We stop the cycle. Here, troubled boys relearn how to function at home and at school. Through evidence-based therapy, we get boys to see how their misbehavior is hurting them and those around them. At the same time, we instill a lifelong love of learning in our boys. This combination of emotional and academic self-sufficiency sets boys up for a lifetime of success.
Students in alternative education often need grade repair and credit recovery. We’ve got that covered. Our certified teachers improve grades through one-on-one engagement and individual tutoring sessions. We can also help our boys catch up on lost credits through an interactive online platform that lets students work at their own pace.
Ashcreek Academy is fully accredited by the Utah State Board of Education and the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools and Colleges. Our college-prep program is designed and taught by experienced, passionate teachers who will provide the best in alternative education to your son.
