+ Executive Functioning
At The Monarch School, your child will be assigned a multidisciplinary team that develops relationship-based behavioral and learning plans that are specific to your child’s individual needs. We will also design tracking and reflection systems that chart your child’s personal growth toward ownership of objectives and targets within the Four Core Goals™.
Together, students and faculty reflect on their goals each class period. Data is continually collected and analyzed, and as objectives are mastered, new ones are chosen – cooperatively. In this way, your child develops self-monitoring techniques as part of a toolbox of strategies that promote regulation and engagement, especially as therapeutic and academic expectations are increased.
+ Relationship Development
Thanks to a variety of social opportunities, we promote the creation of healthy relationships in both small groups and larger groups within the community. Your child will learn how to initiate and participate in community service projects, community meetings, clubs, and committees.
We also offer secondary school experiences, such as socials/dances, prom, graduation, camp retreats, and field trips. Furthermore, through the Butterfly social justice/mediation system, learners develop strategies that help each other reach a mutually beneficial resolution after a conflict.
+ Academic and Professional Competence
We offer 3 Pathways to high school students preparing them for post-secondary experiences after graduation; a 4-year College Pathway, a 2-year Associates/Certificate Pathway, and a Transition Pathway.
All pathways address academics as well as exposure to employment possibilities and experiences.
+ Beyond the Horizon / Employability
As part of our commitment to future employability, students are given career interest inventories starting at age 12. Monarch elective offerings are aligned with both the survey interest areas and the state endorsement categories helping students explore electives in their area of interest develop their employability skills. Some of the elective offerings in our Life Academy include Culinary Arts, Business, Marketing, Production, Woodworking, Art, Photography, and more.
