Our academic setting focuses on smaller class sizes to individualize each students learning experience. Each Student has their own academic plan, and we help them learn based through various learning styles. Together, we rebuild student interest in school and improve academic performance, unlike a summer program for troubled teens.
When we feel good physically we feel better emotionally, and we think more clearly. Having recognized the importance of these findings, we have intentionally included numerous activities and interventions into Equinox programming that focus on the improvement of the physical health of the boys we serve.
Volunteer service work is a significant component of our residential treatment program. The boys participate in service twice a month, which gives them an opportunity to look beyond their own needs and give back to their community. In helping others, our boys often develop greater accountability and self-respect.
Equinox is exclusively designed for young men ages 14 – 18. Our students build accountability, respect, and a solution-oriented approach to solving their challenges with the help our therapeutic approach.
This Journey is about people, not programs. From the passionate people we employ to the families who entrust us with their children to the incredible young men who rededicate themselves to this new journey…the challenges are there, but the results are worth the effort.
