The academic component at Live Strong House caters to students who get lost in traditional school settings. Some of our students struggle with learning differences, others with emotional challenges that impede progress. Many of them lack confidence and may have self-limiting behaviors. At Live Strong House, we provide a personalized education plan. With the help of our Academic Director, each student develops an understanding of what motivates him, what his interests are, and how to use his gifts and talents.
We use assessment and planning to create an individualized academic and vocational plan for each student. Our team consults with past schools and educational counselors to understand our student’s needs, abilities, learning styles, and achievements. We integrate our students’ academic and vocational needs with their therapeutic needs, thus helping our students to overcome false beliefs, develop new habits, and learn positive self-perception.
We have partnered with Coral Sands Academy to drive our academics and support our students’ learning needs. We are driven to evaluate and integrate the specialized learning needs and styles of each student. Individualized academic plans and course planning help our students with recovery credit, maintain graduation pace, and provide advanced courses when appropriate.
Our courses are offered in both an online and offline format, as well as selected courses in direct instruction as whole or small group, dependent on the needs of our student body. These courses are supported daily by individual and group tutoring, both one-on-one and web based. Progress reports are evaluated regularly to determine student engagement and create accommodations and modifications as necessary. Participation in our Live Strong House programs also earns course credit in Personal Development and Leadership, Physical Education, and Psychology.
Each student’s pace can allow them to catch up, move ahead, or even graduate early, allowing for college enrollment or other post-secondary aspirations. It is not uncommon for a student to earn 12 or more credits in a 10 to 12-month period.
The teachers at Live Strong House are licensed and participate in Team Meetings and ongoing professional training. The 1:6 teacher-student ratio allows for the learning environment and instruction to be tailored to the individual student. This allows the teacher to reach both the advanced and struggling student.
As part of our education and vocational programs, we have created a consortium of internships. This allows students to explore the career field and learn different disciplines within the job market. Internships provide real-world experience and are an asset when applying to universities and colleges.
Your son will also be able to participate in ACT and SAT prep courses in preparation for college admittance. If test prep is requested, we will coordinate the scheduling. College tours are offered locally as they are needed.
Two local options are available for Live Strong House students with post secondary goals. Weber State University is a nationally accredited four-year institution located in Ogden, Utah. It is an open-enrollment university that accepts students with a high school diploma. Davis Applied Technical College, located in Kaysville, Utah, offers certificate and licensing programs and is a great opportunity for students interested in technical or vocational careers.
Our educational partner, Coral Sands, is accredited through AdvancED and Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) which means we can work with any school in the nation. Student graduation credit is based off national University Graduation Requirements which also considers state specific home high school graduation requirements. All credits earned can be transferred back to a student’s home high school, or they can graduate from Live Strong House and receive a Coral Sands Academy diploma.
