Day Treatment Schools

Our educational day treatment schools provide individualized curriculum, small class sizes, and a variety of therapeutic options for boys and girls, ages 6-19 in grades K-12. They receive special education classroom teaching as well as therapeutic support at our schools, then return home each afternoon. Students acquire coping skills and new learning strategies that allow them to progress academically, socially, emotionally and behaviorally so they can successfully transition back to their home school district or graduate from high school with plans for their futures. Our schools are located on our Gillis and Ozanam Campuses.


Youth Educational Success (YES)

Youth Educational Success (YES) supports youth (age 17 - 23) involved in the foster-care system to overcome barriers by providing each participant with the appropriate access knowledge & resource assistance needed to effectively navigate community-based supports & programs to encourage their post-secondary education success.


Behavior Intervention Support Team (BIST)

After we received strong interest when others saw firsthand the effectiveness of strategies used on our campuses to help students succeed, we created our Behavior Intervention Support Team (BIST). Today, BIST trains 300 schools in 55 districts throughout the Midwest, providing customized consultations to teachers and administrators so they can implement trauma-informed practices to give students the tools they need to achieve their dreams. Our BIST Model is recognized as an evidence-based practice with data showing a correlation to improved teaching strategies and improved student behavior in schools utilizing the program.
