Individualized Support

Character Education and Life Skill Training: A teenage client of Turning Winds, answering questions about his character. He is writing at a desk in a Turning Winds classroom, with two other students nearby.

Our certified educators are dedicated to providing each teen with a high-quality education to set them on a path to future success. Educators structure individualized learning for students based on their unique learning needs. Our team promotes an optimal learning environment for each student to thrive. We offer small class sizes of 8 -12 students to allow our teachers to spend the individual time needed with each student. We provide a hybrid scholastic approach to teaching with one-on-one tutoring, teacher-led instruction, and online schooling. We utilize APEX for our math and science programs which allows us to line up a student’s education sequence based on their home state’s requirements.

Our goal is to make sure that each and every student gets the education and support they need for success. We work closely with the counseling departments in every student’s previous school to fill in any gaps in their current educational path.

Sometimes students come to us with existing IEPs or suffer from various learning disorders. Our experienced teaching staff will work with our clinicians to help treat learning disorders within the classroom and support any IEPs through every stage of our residential program.

Many students who come to us have been underachieving in their previous academic environment, and through our program emerge in a place set up for success. We have 98 percent of our teens go on to college or trade school, and our students have even gone on to attend some of the top universities in the nation.
