The students of Ashcreek Academy are presented with a college-prep academic experience which prepares them to succeed when they return home.
Students enjoy our small classroom environment and an individually customized approach to maximize each student’s ability to learn. The classroom learning environment is designed to help students recognize their unique learning profiles and advocate for individual needs.
Our academic team is an integral part of our treatment environment. Each teacher has an intimate knowledge of each student’s complex needs, their master treatment plan goals, and interventions; and works closely with each residential mentor and therapist to ensure academic success.
This individual attention and focus on each student’s needs requires our academic team to be constantly aware of the bigger picture; initially focusing on increasing student’s success and comfort in the classroom, moving to helping student’s develop a love of learning and preparing students to transition to more traditional academic environments on track to graduation and prepared to meet the demands of quality education.
Due to the many transitions our students and families typically experience on their journey to Ashcreek Academy, we find that many students are credit deficient or have missing chunks of curriculum essential to academic success. Each student’s transcript and academic profile is thoroughly reviewed and an individualized credit evaluation is completed to identify these gaps or areas of need.
