Program Description:
New Visions Academy of Baltimore educates and serves seriously emotionally disabled adolescent males in grades 6 through 12 who are unable to remain within the mainstream public education system. Through our psycho-educational systemic intervention model, we deliver a comprehensive program which integrates education (academic and vocational) and treatment (clinical and behavioral management) into a unified process that enhances learning and prevents more restrictive or residential care. The Academy offers academic courses in English/language arts, social studies, mathematics, science, technology education and special subject areas. The Career Services Training Center provides individualized competency based programs that integrate vocational and academic education. Courses in graphic communication, computer science/systems, automotive mechanics, and construction methods (carpentry and masonry) are provided; hands-on training and work/study components are offered; vocational and pre-employment assessments are provided for all students; school-to-work options are available, offering both advanced and remedial work experiences developed to fit students’ special needs. The Clinical Program provides individual, and group therapy. Family therapy services are also available. The Behavioral Management Program provides crisis intervention and behavioral counseling services. All students participate in the behavior management system that monitors daily progress and performance. As students advance through the program, they prepare for the opportunity to return to the public school setting.
