Tell me more about the alternative school.
While in residential treatment clients attend our alternative high school which is accredited through Portland Public Schools. For those who choose not to work towards traditional high school credits we offer GED preparation and facilitate testing. If a client has already earned a GED or Diploma they can work on getting into/taking college course or another independent project. Our clients spend 4 hours per day in school in addition to treatment groups, individual sessions, family sessions, community activities and recreational activities.
