CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM


Core Values/Milliue Counseling/ Workshops

Our personal growth curriculum teaches older adolescents to identify and resolve their individual issues in order to develop positive, healthy lives. Through peer-accountability discussions, personal-growth workshops and faculty counseling and modeling, your child will examine behavior patterns and learn to make productive choices.

The personal growth curriculum is structured into phases, with a cumulative curriculum designed to build on lessons learned in the earlier phases. The focus on issues through emotional growth experiences is individualized to each student.

The program emphasizes accepting responsibility for one's behavior and feelings, building healthy meaningful relationships, developing a positive value system based on honesty, learning how to set and accomplish goals and dealing with and resolving underlying feelings and fears. Our students learn to resolve issues and come to understand the power their choices have in creating a healthy lifestyle.

Leadership

All Northwest Academy students participate in regular peer-group counseling along with periodic personal growth experiences. As students progress through their personal growth curriculum, they are invited to take on leadership roles on the campus, utilizing their newfound skills to help other students. With the confidence that comes from our personal growth program, Northwest Academy students are able to develop plans and set future goals.

PARENT EDUCATION

Northwest Academy offers and requests as part of your students program, your attendance in the Parent Workshops. Through this forum, we provide a learning experience that is designed to complement your child's program. Workshops are designed to provide support to our families and are open to all parents, step-parents, guardians and extended family. Participation in these important aspects of the program demonstrates to your child a clear commitment to their therapeutic journey.

Parent Workshops

Parent Workshops progress from the sharing of common parental experiences, problems and solutions, to more individual introspection and interaction with others. The workshops are filled with practical concepts and tools for building and maintaining healthy relationships. The structure and content of the workshops allow for maximum group support and interaction. We greatly promote as parents and other guardians such as step parents and grandparents who provide or have been of direct care to the students. Additional family members who wish to attend must be approved through the Student Enrichment Team prior. Upon enrollment, Clinical Services will send out a calendar of events outlining the Workshop dates for the year. Invitation and registration packets will be mailed approximately two months prior to the event.
