The Red Hawk Academy for Girls is maintained in a non-traditional school setting. Most young women have had difficulty with learning in the settings they came from, so it doesn’t make sense to continue with similar environments. We have many options to help students learn in ways that best fit their needs, whether that be using music, movement in special chairs, quiet rooms or extra help staying on task when struggling with executive functions.
The best part of our academics is the credits earned here at Red Hawk Academy for Girls can transfer to other public or private schools once your child returns home. All students have the privilege of one free month of academic access to continue their studies wherever they go from here. Options are available to continue school through the same educational methods at home and graduate from home. Red Hawk helps maintain continuity through your daughter’s educational needs once graduating the program and returning home.
SMALL class sizes and a non-traditional learning environment are important to our student’s academic needs. We often see that not only do our students make up needed credits but excel in the Red Hawk classroom towards graduation with this schedule. We have also found through experience that some students learn better in the morning and some in the afternoon.
Our students do not stop learning in the classroom. When residents are not in school, they are engaging in other learning environments to practice the skills they are acquiring at Red Hawk. Some of these learning environments include psycho-therapy with a certified clinician, EAGALA certified equine therapy, recreational therapy with trained staff, social skill development activities, and structured program activities.
We believe each YOUNG person is a unique individual. We
respect the contributions they have made and will make in
their lives and to their communities. We are sensitive to their
social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs. We
believe strongly in providing a physical environment that is
safe, clean, healthy, and oriented to the highest quality of life.
