Every adolescent has a unique learning style. For a child struggling with mental, emotional and learning disorders a conventional academic environment may become a roadblock to learning and succeeding. LOGOS goes beyond the traditional classroom to meet every student where they are academically and work with them in a structured but flexible manner. Our 21 highly skilled teachers develop and implement individual academic plans for every student that provides the attention needed for academic growth and success. Our 6:1 student to teacher ratio allows teachers to adjust their teaching styles and go beyond simply accommodating students to help them address underlying learning challenges. LOGOS provides accredited academics, state approved curriculum, honors and remedial courses, National Honor Society opportunities and a well-known art program.
Common elective classes offered throughout the year include: Yearbook, Creative Writing, Current Events, Gardening, Debate and Discussion, Community Service, Art Mural, College Planning, Music Appreciation, Conservation and Ecology.

Our teachers and therapists work together in partnership with students’ families to develop individualized plans specific to each student’s time at LOGOS. These plans combine the academics and life skills needed meet or exceed each student’s aspirations for the future. Our goal is to ensure that their academic success and therapeutic growth is strong, allowing them to go on to greater success when they leave LOGOS.
