Midwest Academy

Education for Children

To help our youngest patients stay up to speed on their education while they are residents in our program, Midwest Center for Youth & Families offers an on-grounds freeway-accredited school. Midwest Academy is run by DBT-trained and licensed educators who offer a structured, individualized educational setting. We aim to create an educational environment where young students can also learn to express their thoughts and feelings appropriately. Our goal is to prepare students to successfully return to their school and to help increase their academic aptitude.

Midwest Academy offers the following services:

  • Credits transfer to home school
  • Small group tutorial for identified students
  • Credit recovery
  • An academic curriculum tailored to meet both academic and therapeutic individual needs of students
  • Extended school year offered for all students
  • Collaboration with home school

Our teachers maintain Indiana state licensing requirements and receive additional training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Their philosophy is to establish a supportive classroom environment where students are encouraged to take risks, evaluate their own work and monitor their choices. Prior to your child’s discharge, our educators will develop an educational plan for their future.
