In-School Alternative Program

The In-School Alternative Program provides a comprehensive program of individualized educational, psychological and social services to youth who have been recommended for a temporary alternative placement by their school district. Typically, these placements range from 20 - 45 school days and the In-School Alternative Program is housed within the student's traditional school.

Our In-School Alternative Programs are supervised by a Masters Level Program director and run by Bachelor's Level Youth Interventionists. Each program provides direct services in the form of:

  • Academic support
  • Community Service
  • Character Education
  • Behavior Modification
  • Restorative Practices

In-School Alternative Intervention services are time limited. Once the student has completed the program and is recommended for transition forward to their regular class schedule, a transition plan will be developed, unique to the student's social and academic needs, to ensure proper readjustment and stabilization.
