Education for young men provides the foundation for work as an adult. For those who are struggling with challenging personal issues, however, academic achievement is often far down the list of active concerns. At Kaizen Academy, academic achievement is promoted by giving each youth the opportunity to make it a priority and by fostering a safe and academically challenging learning environment at our teen residential treatment center near Provo, Utah.
The Importance of Proper Education for Today's Youth
At Kaizen Academy, we understand the importance of providing a proper education for today's youth. We prioritize academic achievement and offer a safe and supportive learning environment. With our dedicated and certified teachers, we ensure personalized instruction and individualized support for each student. Our curriculum is designed to foster growth, confidence, and a love for learning. Whether it's remedial assistance, advanced placement, or college classes, we strive to provide a well-rounded education that prepares students for a successful future.
About Our Facility
The young men at Kaizen Academy attend school in our on-campus classroom with instructional support on campus and oversight provided by certified teachers through our private school (“Alta Independent” school, accredited by AdvancED). Although this program is not the traditional path toward education, rest assured that our students will still receive the proper teachings they need to grow and thrive as a student. We will ensure that each student has the opportunity to build an education required to succeed in life, in a safe and encouraging environment.
*Disclaimer* We elect not to use “Kaizen Academy” as the school name to protect the confidentiality of each student on transcripts and diplomas.
An Individualized Approach
When first admitted to Kaizen Academy, each student receives a credit evaluation and testing to evaluate areas of needed improvement. When needed, additional assistance is provided through our special education services and tutors. Our academic support staff-to-student ratio is 1 to 3, providing an environment for students to make progress toward educational goals.
Our Hybrid Model
We offer a “hybrid” multimedia-rich format for learning that provides the flexibility of online schooling with the benefit of one-on-one and small-group instruction. The curriculum is standard for junior high and high school; however, coursework is also individualized to help each student meet graduation requirements. The curriculum is designed for individualized programs that correct academic weaknesses, capitalize on strengths, and learning styles, and increase self-confidence.
Core classes offered at our teen RTC include (but are not limited to): Pre-algebra, Algebra, Algebra 2, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, World History, American History, Earth Science, Writing Comprehension, English, Physical Education, Spanish, German, French, and Health.
Many students at Kaizen Academy have achieved academic success for the first time in their lives, often creating the spark for a love of learning. Academic opportunities for advanced placement and college classes are also available for youth who are eligible for and interested in post-high-school education.
