From our President & CEO
Life is precious.

Every minute of every day, we need to remind ourselves of the good things in our lives, and be grateful for our many blessings.

Springtime gives us reminders of how life renews itself; we see it in the green plants that come to life after a long winter, we feel it in the warmer air and sunshine, and we notice it on the smiling faces of friends and neighbors.

This is a message that we continually bring to the children and families we work with: that there is always a chance to begin again, to create a new path for your life.

We thank each and every one of you for helping us and our families as we embark on yet another precious journey.

The Learning Place
An Alternative Academic Day Treatment Program
for Middle School Students
The Learning Place is a school-like day treatment program for students in grades 7-9 who have experienced significant behavioral difficulties in the public school setting. This program will launch in August of 2015.

Academic, counseling and behavioral components encourage students to return to and succeed in the traditional school setting.

Each studentís academic plan is individualized to address deficiencies in basic skills and knowledge base.

The counseling component is designed to assist in the identification of obstacles to success and in development of strategies to overcome them.

The behavioral component responds to the studentís need for immediate feedback and consequences for their behavior.

Students earn privileges and can work their way through a series of levels.

Parental involvement is essential to a studentís success in The Learning Place, and parents are apprised daily of their childís progress and involved with programming.

The staff is comprised of a Director, teachers, and counselors. The low student to staff ratio allows staff members to give individual attention. Each staff member is trained to work with students who exhibit behavioral difficulties.
