We recognize that school is not easy for many students. For some students, the thought of leaving the house to take a bus or enter a school building is simply overwhelming. At Hope Academy, we provide specialized services for students who experience significant anxiety surrounding school attendance. These services involve a highly individualized program to help the student engage in school. Individualized services may include a modified day with a plan for systematic desensitization to increase school attendance, alternate learning options, and highly individualized behavioral programming. Our school engagement services depend heavily on family involvement. Family coaching by certified clinicians is provided to help parents and guardians implement effective strategies that will help the student achieve success in regularly attending school.
