We believe that quality education and supports must be learner-centered and inspire intrinsic motivation. Our approach is consistent with the psychological research and framework for school design and reform described in the American' Psychological Association’s “Top 20 Principles for Pre-K to 12 Education.” We designed our programs so that they focus on the critical, cognitive, motivational and affective factors that contemporary research suggests determines success in school and life. Our Therapeutic Coaches and Professional Educators work “hand in hand” and “side by side” developing and implementing Individual Therapeutic Educational Plans ensuring every student and adult learner receives a balanced approach to a therapeutic education allowing our students and adult learners to find their best life today and beyond.
Serving students grades Pre-K-12 in their development within the Four Core Goals™. Students in Chrysalis are working on delays in development of regulation, sensory motor coordination, relationships,and academics. Class ratios are 4:1 and 2: 1. Depending on levels of support needed, students may transition to Bridge around the age of 11.
Ranging from grades 6-12, Bridge serves as a transitional opportunity for students ready for greater independence to experience a secondary type program. Students engage with multiple teachers and elective opportunities. Upon progress in the Four Core Goals™, students may transition to Butterfly.
