THERAPEUTIC EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM
"WE ARE THE ONLY ACCREDITED THERAPEUTIC SCHOOL IN NEW YORK CITY"
WELCOME TO THE START OF YOUR JOURNEY
Therapeutic Accreditation from National Independent Private School Association (NIPSA)
Unlike most schools that position themselves to be “therapeutic," Academics West is a true clinical program and is the only therapeutically accredited day school in New York City. As a Level Three therapeutic school, therapy is a requirement for all students and is conducted solely by licensed mental health professionals with a minimum of two years of experience. This level of certification also indicates that family therapy is an integral part of the program. Academics West, therefore, provides traditional academic support and remediation while also offering a wide array of clinical interventions. Students benefit from individual and group therapy, family therapy, art therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy in an integrated collaborative care model.
