Specialized Academic Instruction
Students are provided with 240 minutes of academic instruction daily, delivered by credentialed special educators. High school students are able to earn 30 credits per semester and an additional 15 credits during summer school toward high school graduation. James Baldwin Academy's academic program combines a rigorous emphasis on increased achievement with the supports needed for students to realize success.
Every student meets with his/her therapist once a week. By building an alliance with student and continuously seeking their feedback and opinions, our therapists can tailor sessions to students' individual needs and preferences while accessing well-researched therapeutic modalities that align with Seneca's Unconditional Care model.
We build active partnerships with our students' families and encourage all families to participate in weekly family therapy, which can be offered on campus or at another location at the family's request. By working closely together, we can best support and nurture our students.
Group therapy provides a structured therapeutic environment for students to learn new skills, process situations, gain a better understanding of themselves, their families, and their communities. Restorative practices enable students to build community and take responsibility for their impact on others.
A variety of additional services may be provided including:
- Speech and Language Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Consultation with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst
- Psychiatric Evaluation and Support
