Teaching Philosophy

Turning Winds seeks to turn hearts and minds toward a brighter future. We believe that creating relationships is key to success in life. At our residential treatment center, we challenge each student to achieve personal excellence in academics and communication as they become self-directed and continue on their path of growth and achievement.

We offer a high-quality academic experience for each teenage student. As clients in a residential treatment center with a strong academic program, they are provided with a highly individualized academic experience.

The process of learning itself can be powerfully therapeutic. The mindful pursuit of education can relate to all areas of life. At Turning Winds, educators help students see parallels between the rigors of academic life and the pursuit of a meaningful personal life. Academics serve the dual purpose of continuing the educational trajectory and training students to successfully transfer critical thinking skills to the pursuit of life goals.

Turning Winds provides a variety of teaching and learning opportunities such as experiential learning, leadership development, career planning, field trips, technology integration, as well as additional educational activities and resources that we integrate to support student learning.

A good education is important for personal growth and future employment. It can help students improve their self-image and self-confidence and offer different tools for problem-solving. It can stimulate mental agility and help make good life decisions.
