Students at troubled teen academies continue the pursuit of their high school education in an on-campus school.
Usually, these schools employ a mixture of curricula, utilizing computer-based courses, traditional classroom instruction, and self-paced workbooks. The curricula focus on the traditional foundations of a proper education. The unique combination allows students to largely work move ahead in their coursework, retake failed courses to improve their GPA, or to make up credits if they are behind.
While the academic school year usually runs roughly parallel to that of any public school, the individualized approach to education allows students to smoothly matriculate any time of the year.
These schools are accredited and seek to prepare students to face their future. They will be exposed to several different vocational opportunities and given the chance to learn basic skills in different areas. Academically, they are pushed to reach their potential.
