Logan River Academy Expands Academic Program with New 7th Grade Curriculum
Logan, Utah– Logan River Academy (LRA), a residential treatment center in Northern Utah, is excited to announce an expansion of their program. They recently added programming to accommodate a 7th grade curriculum, allowing them to serve students of all genders who are beginning or currently in 7th grade. Historically, Logan River Academy has only been able to accept students in 8th through 12th grade. To help get this new programming launched, LRA has allotted significant scholarship money to help families who may need it.
“We felt like this particular age group wasn’t being served very well in the industry” says LRA’s Executive Director Matt Erickson, “We were getting a lot of referrals for 12- and 13-year-olds who were a great clinical fit, but unfortunately we weren’t able to accept them because they were in the 7th grade. We have been hearing more and more from our referral partners that they needed more options for these younger students, so we decided to make the investments necessary to expand our academic curriculum.” Matt goes on, “Our hope is that we will be able to better meet the needs of those families and help guide them through the challenges they are facing with their student.” The whole team is very optimistic about this new addition and they’re looking forward to being able to serve more families as the new curriculum is launched.
In order to maintain the same level of excellence in care, Logan River Academy has hired a separate middle school teacher who will be able to focus solely on this new middle school curriculum. In addition to a new teacher, they have hired multiple academic paraprofessionals for additional support in the classroom. Classes will be teacher-directed and students will have the same access to all resource classrooms and LRA’s extensive special education system. In order to ensure the safety of all students, each student will be housed with others of a similar age group.
