About Telos

Typical students at Telos are bright yet underachieving. Many students get lost in traditional academic settings, needing a higher level of individualized support. Telos students tend to be soft hearted, behaviorally mild and clinically complex.

Two campuses:
– The Center St Campus is home to Telos Academy, a residential and academic program for adolescent boys.
– The Geneva Campus is home to Telos U, a co-ed (young women and men) program offering students a continuum of support from residential treatment to independent living as they pursue education and employment. Also on this campus is the Telos Senior House, a residential support program for adolescent boys age 17.5-18 still working on high school, that celebrates older students with age-appropriate activities and friends.

Telos staff learn and practice a high standard of care. A kind and patient way of being, relational coaching and a gift for connecting with young people are qualities exemplified by our staff. Employees are certified in important professional competencies designed to promote excellence and best practices across all program domains. A hallmark of our program is the ability of staff to get clinical interventions out of the therapist’s office and into the larger milieu, thus maximizing the power of quality residential treatment.

Telos is a principles-based, individualized treatment program. Going beyond simple behavioral conditioning, students learn the “why” behind rules, increasing the likelihood of a lifestyle that long outlasts their time in the program.
