The Greentree School provides the educational supports necessary for young men in the Greentree Adolescent Program (GAP) to become high school graduates and successfully move on to vocational or post-secondary education, the military, and/or the workforce.
Founded in 1993, the Greentree School is an approved Type III Education day school that supports the residents of the Greentree Adolescent Program (GAP) as they matriculate in neighborhood public schools or private special education programs. The Greentree School liaison follows GAP residents in the schools during the day to ensure that their academic needs are being met.
The Greentree School is essential because our residents require a therapeutic academic setting due to the following: chronic disruption in educational placement, school anxiety and behavior adjustment issues, and missing educational documentation. Youth receive comprehensive educational support and guidance from a professional, certified teacher, which helps them adjust to a mainstream school or prepare to achieve a high school equivalency diploma. The Greentree School also provides daily tutoring and homework assistance to ensure that residents continue to make educational progress.
