For Referral Agencies
Turning Point’s academic programs for residential clients are developed to accommodate students with varying learning styles at a wide range of educational levels, and they are fully approved by the Colorado Department of Education. We offer each of our students a structured, supportive, and individualized educational setting. Turning Point’s educational programs utilize Positive Behavior Support best practices.
Each youth in the residential educational program has the option of earning his or her GED, graduating from Turning Point’s Waverly School, transferring credits back to his or her home school, or enrolling in courses for college credit. We also offer assistance to students through vocational education options. It is our goal to ensure that each student advances to his or her appropriate grade level while in our care.
We are proud of our 10-to-1 student/teacher ratio. Our staff members include licensed special education teachers, educational counselors, and numerous volunteers from the community and local universities. We also receive federal funds that provide for a Title I (literacy) teacher.
Our education staff members strive to facilitate successful transitions for our youth as they re-enter the public school system upon completion of their program at Turning Point.
