Schools for Troubled Teens: Revitalizing Curiosity in Struggling Students

For families with a struggling student, school often has become a place of negativity. It’ no longer a positive learning environment, it’s a place your student dreads going because it’s where they feel they fail the most. In schools for struggling teens, we strive to change this idea.

Reconnecting students with the excitement and curiosity that education should invigorate is critical to helping them become successful. To do this at Elevations, we’ve developed a setting that inspires an eagerness to learn.

Supporting each individual student

No student is the same. Traditional schools often attempt and fail to help the students that are less typical and have unique challenges. Without the proper support and encouragement, it can be hard for these students to find success.

As one of the top schools for struggling teens, we work to create a setting in which students can reach their highest academic potential. To do this, each student goes through a comprehensive evaluation to find their learning style, strengths, and areas for improvement in academics.

The combination of this academic assessment, mental health treatment, and a student’s educational history allow us to formulate an individualized academic plan for every student.

We teach all of our students study skills that are practical and will empower them to continue in education after leaving Elevations.

A ‘real world’ environment for learning

When students return home from Elevations, they’re not going to be in a perfectly monitored environment–because of this, we’ve developed a “real world” school setting for our students. Unlike most schools for struggling teens, we have a carefully controlled all gender setting.

By having a all gender experience that mimics the important interactions between genders in traditional school settings, we allow our students to develop healthy, appropriate relationships with the opposite-sex.

For many teens that enter Elevations, opposite-sex relationships have been complicated, confusing, and often destructive. In the real world, interaction with different genders is a reality, which is why we believe it’s so important to help our students learn to form meaningful and positive relationships with the opposite-sex.

This feature of Elevations also allows our students to transition home much more smoothly because they’ve already learned how to overcome that challenge.

With our superior school facilities, accredited academics, and unique learning environment, Elevations is a place where students can reconnect with education and find growth within themselves.

If you believe your teen is struggling with a mental health issue, it’s critical to reach out to a professional for further guidance.
