Academic Credits

Many Aspiro students have had a history of academic struggle that have undoubtedly contributed to other behavioral/emotional struggles. Academics is provided at Aspiro for two primary reasons:

  1. The academic work is a part of the overall functional assessment. It allows our treatment team to better understand and observe how a student learns, processes information, organizes tasks and more.
  2. Aspiro students have the opportunity to earn actual course credit that can be transferred to any accredited school.Troubled teen studying during wilderness therapy - Aspiro Wilderness Adventure Therapy
