EDGE Collegiate believes that a successful program must address all of the elements of an individual’s development. Our curriculum focuses on both learning and wellness to build the skills, connections, and support that students need to achieve a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. Our 7 dimensions of Wellness include: • Educational • Social • Physical • Emotional • Spiritual • Environmental • Financial/Career To facilitate learning, EDGE Collegiate utilizes individualized assessments that evaluate the student’s educational support and life skill development needs, augmented by career advice, study halls and peer support, to establish a foundation and identify a constructive path forward. The EDGE Collegiate community is comprised of young adults committed to building the skills to further their education, pursue new opportunities, and create an individual plan to achieve their goals. From a structured living environment in the heart of Chicago, a dedicated team of live-in staff provides direction and support. Our team includes clinicians, learning coaches, life coaches and mentors. Screening and admissions is based on the premise of matching a student’s needs to our program’s offerings. There is a written application, reviewed by the admissions team and then, if the student appears appropriate for the program, an interview is scheduled with the family. Upon admission, students complete a writing assessment as well as wellness, learning, and daily living skills assessments that inform the development of individual learning & life management.

Mission Statement
The transition from adolescence to adulthood isn’t easy for anyone, but the right structure, support, and expertise can provide individuals with the foundational skills they need to develop and grow. EDGE Collegiate Learning and Wellness Community is for young adults motivated to achieve success in life. We equip students who would benefit from a support-rich, substance-free environment to be responsible, autonomous adults.
