Our Top Notch Educational Program
You don’t want your child to fall through the cracks academically while they get their behavior under control, and neither do we! Education goes on year-round here, and class sizes at Stillwater are small. The curriculum is customized, so each student learns at their own level and pace, overseen and encouraged by licensed teachers. Such focused academic attention has proven especially helpful for students who are struggling with poor grades, ADHD, and learning disorders.
Students at Stillwater begin to thrive educationally as they also grow behaviorally, emotionally, and psychologically. Academic subjects like Math, Science, English, History, and Art, along with others, all start to make sense and come to life for our students – some of whom have never succeeded in school. In fact, on average, students see a 1.5 grade-point increase in their cumulative GPA during their stay in the program.

- Prepare each student to meet the requirements of high school graduation and higher education.
- Awaken in each student a love of learning.
- Provide a successful educational experience that supports the emotional, mental, and social growth and development of each student.
Helping Struggling Teens Facing Challenges in Executive Function
In today’s fast-paced and demanding world, many teens find themselves grappling with challenges related to executive function, such as organization, time management, and impulse control.
