We’re Thinking About the Future
The purpose of drug or alcohol addiction rehab is to live a healthy, happy life. For teens, a large part of their future is based on their education. At Caron, we believe this education is incredibly important, and that teens shouldn’t have to put learning on hold while they’re in treatment.
Please note that on-site schooling is only available at Caron’s Pennsylvania Treatment Center.
Caron Pennsylvania is one of only a few treatment centers to offer on-site, individualized education for adolescents and teens in treatment.
During the course of a teen’s stay in primary or extended care treatment at Caron Pennsylvania, they have the opportunity to be involved in Caron’s Education Program. Their regular school provides assignments, and the teaching staff at Caron Pennsylvania helps each student achieve and maintain acceptable academic status while in treatment.
Caron Pennsylvania provides an alternative education program licensed through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. All teachers are licensed to teach in an alternative education setting, and have experience in handling students with emotional and behavioral difficulties. Through these educational resources, we are also able to provide up-to-date educational testing as needed. Special tutoring for GED testing is available, as is tutoring over the summer months.
