College Prep

College Prep

Our comprehensive curriculum offerings and individualized plans provide everything your teen needs to get their education on the right track. Turning Winds offers almost any class our students will need to continue their education. We work closely with counselors from previous schools for each student to ensure that all criteria for graduation are met. 

We can also arrange AP classes and AP testing for students seeking an advanced level of education, and address both SAT and ACT preparation and testing for students to remain on track with educational requirements.

Our research indicates that on average our students earn a GPA of 3.5 while here, and in a 12-month time period our average student completes about 1.5-2 years of school while experiencing a GPA increase of almost a full letter grade compared to what their GPA was before coming to Turning Winds. 

More than 90 percent of our teens go on to college or a trade school after their discharge from Turning Winds.
