We operate on a merit system called “Self-Directed Process”. This allows the developing of Self Direction or Internal Direction rather than requiring continued External Direction. This is the long term key to your child’s success. The students evaluate themselves on Cooperation, Relationships, Responsibilities, and Overall Attitude. The staff will review all points given by the students. We use the staff as a safety net for those who would exaggerate their points to manipulate the system.
Students work through 1- 6 levels. Each new level offers additional privileges, motivating the student to work harder. As a child advances in the program, the adolescent is given additional opportunities to make personal choices. The school becomes a testing ground to ascertain each child’s level of commitment towards changing past negative behavior.
