Our programs provide a path to graduation for students who have struggled in other school settings. Students often come to us lacking confidence and feeling a low sense of self-worth. Through consistency and one-on-one guidance, our expert staff members dismantle these negative belief systems and nurture self-efficacy, grit, and determination.

Academic programs we offer are individually prescribed according to results from previous school performance, previous IEP, parent input and diagnostic assessments. Detailed lesson plans include the required State Standards/Access Points for the identified diploma pathway.
As a trauma-informed school, we have a team of behavioral and mental health experts who greet students individually at the start of each day and then continue to assess our students' wellbeing and stability throughout the day. Using evaluative tools, our behavioral and mental health team stays in close touch with administration and teachers. Our team also coordinates with outside resources to provide referrals for community services and training.
EdVenture was chosen by the American Psychiatric Association Foundation as one of 16 schools nationwide to pilot the revised Typical or Troubled?® Program. This program trains staff to recognize the warning signs of mental health problems and what course of action to take in addressing these potential issues.
EdVenture fosters the student employment transition process through leadership classes, pre-vocational work experience, employability skills groups, employment placement, and employment monitoring. To sharpen students' vocational skills, we provide hands-on, work-like environments. We offer students the ability to earn monetary compensation to encourage employment-readiness behaviors.
