The Program

Academic Support

Turnbridge Academy helps adolescent extended care clients with every aspect of their academic journey. Through individualized academic plans, tutoring, and advising, the Turnbridge team helps students matriculate through high school and prepare for college.

Education is a vital part of adolescent development, and we help each client continue coursework and remain challenged to ensure a smooth and positive transition to school following treatment. Turnbridge assessments help to determine each client’s level of academic proficiency and identify potential cognitive or behavioral challenges that could stand in the way of academic performance. We take a treatment-informed approach to academics that gears curriculum, scheduling, and support services to each client’s treatment needs and achievement level.
