The New Haven school offers a unique academic setting for teens in residential treatment. Teacher led instruction is offered to each child in small classroom sizes, allowing for personalized care and engaging discussion around each subject. Every student has the opportunity to take advanced placement (from AP certified teachers), honors and general education courses from teachers with years for experience in their field.
The chart below illustrates how our girls are excelling at their standardized testing. The average teen at New Haven is scoring well above state and national averages. This is pretty amazing considering that most teens enroll at New Haven behind in school.
So what’s the secret? Keeping students' academic experience challenging from day one. Teens at New Haven come in with high levels of anxiety, depression, conflict with parents, and in a lot of cases academics are not a priority. However by continuing to challenge girls academically as they work through mental health issues, emotional triggers that are often seen in school can be worked through in the therapeutic process. Another benefit is that New Haven's high achieving students don’t have to sacrifice a challenging academic experience as they work through clinical issues.
