Sunrise Residential Treatment Center is dual-licensed as a residential treatment center and a therapeutic boarding school. This licensure enables them to meet the individual therapeutic needs of each of their students, and also meet each girl where she is academically, enabling her to achieve her academic goals.
Sunrise' private school features small class sizes; highly trained, relational teachers, and a "real" high school experience. The result is that 99% of their students who complete therapy at Sunrise are on track or even ahead of their peers at home, in being prepared for high school graduation. In addition, 100% of Sunrise girls who are behind in their academics because of their struggles, are caught up or again, ahead of their peers when they graduate from Sunrise. Many of their older students complete High School early and may have co-enrolled in one of the two local, four-year colleges. And many of the girls who have graduated High School at Sunrise take full college course-loads locally while completing their therapeutic work at Sunrise.
Sunrise RTC hosts a High School Graduation ceremony each year for those students who complete their high school credits during their stay at Sunrise. "Our high school graduation is one of my favorite moments every year" says Krista Perry, Sunrise Academic Director, "It is so fun and the ceremony is short, sweet, and full of joy!" This year was no different, with 9 graduates participating in the ceremony; three of whom were alumni students who chose to come back to Sunrise and walk with their graduating class. Each year students are awarded Valedictorian, Most Improved student, and a leadership award; and these students are asked to speak during the ceremony. A mother of a current student commented, "This was one of the best graduations I have ever been to! The girls spoke so clearly and confidently about their academic success -- it gave me hope for my daughter."
