blueFire Wilderness Adds Middle School Report Cards to Academic Programming
blueFire Wilderness, a wilderness therapy program for adolescents and teens ages 11-17, now offers report cards for middle schoolers as part of their academic programming. Academics at blueFire are presented through Dorius Academy, a Cognia-accredited program.
Wilderness therapy allows for hands-on, experiential learning that often serves clients well who may have struggled in a traditional classroom setting; upon admission to the program, clients at blueFire will receive a Learning Styles Assessment to better understand their strengths and weaknesses in education. Academic goals are included in each client’s treatment plan as part of their overall journey.
Middle school clients can now receive report cards in traditional subjects such as Physical Education, English/Language Arts, Environmental Science, Psychology Daily Living, and Character Education. Report cards include the subject area, credit earned, and letter grade.
“Providing report cards to parents can help them get a better understanding of their child’s strengths as they prepare for their transition back to their home schools,” said Reid Treadaway, Director of Admissions at blueFire. “Parents can be assured that their child’s education is still being prioritized while in treatment.”
Experiential-based learning programs can help provide clients with a more positive educational experience that makes the transition back to their home schools easier. The opportunity to reset in nature and discover new ways of learning can initiate a client’s long-term success.
