Upon admission to Solstice, the Academic Director reviews all student records (transcripts, report cards, neuropsychiatric testing, educational testing, etc.) and ensures placement in the correct classes in order to facilitate successful learning, credit remediation or recovery, and to keep the student on track for high school graduation. Students take the IOWA Basics exam so that the academic team has accurate baseline data in order to understand the specific academic needs for each student. Executive Functioning concerns are also assessed and an academic plan for each student is developed to address any and all academic concerns.
Teachers at Solstice work closely with the entire treatment team (parents, educational consultants, therapists, future school) in order to complete an academic plan that will make certain a transition plan to the next school or post-secondary institution.
