Academic progress is often one of the first things to suffer when a student is dealing with problems/behavioral issues. At Briar Patch, we understand your child's unique emotional and academic needs. Our staff is future-focused to help your child recover school credits and continue on a successful path to graduation, college, and beyond. Curriculum is tailored to each student's grade level and customized to address any issues that may be hindering their academic progress.

BP offers a general-education course specifically designed for the student's unique needs. Although we do utilize traditional textbooks in our academic courses, we also use various non-traditional educational techniques which are designed to more fully engage the student in their education.
