Hope Therapeutic Day Academy

Established in 2004, Hope Therapeutic Day Academy is a therapeutic, empirically based and data driven, educational program designed to support students grades K-8. Hope supports those who are not thriving in the traditional school setting because of emotional and behavioral difficulties related to mental health concerns. Our licensed therapists work closely with our students to teach skills to grow academically, socially and emotionally. An integral piece of our program is parent and referring school participation in order to return the student back to their home school as quickly and safely as possible. We meet on a regular basis with all parties involved and encourage feedback and collaboration to foster student independence and a successful transition. Furthermore, we provide a positive environment where we celebrate the students’ successes and seek to recognize their abilities and accomplishments on a daily basis.

Our Approach

At HTDA, we partner with local districts to meet the needs of students who need additional support to succeed. We strive to teach students the social and emotional skills they require to return to their home school. We tailor the learning plan of each student so that they can stabilize their behavior quickly and effectively.

Our Faculty

At HTDA, each classroom features certified special education teachers. To provide tailored support to each of our students, licensed mental health clinicians and teacher’s aids are in each classroom.
