At LOGOS, our program is designed to meet students where they are and support their educational, social and emotional needs with compassion and acceptance. Our students are strong, caring, unique, creative, intelligent, tenacious, curious and gifted. They have hopes and dreams for a successful future, and we’re here to help them reach their full potential.
The LOGOS therapeutic program is the mainstay of our approach. When a student is accepted and enrolled in our school, they are assigned to one of our 13 licensed therapists. LOGOS therapists use a cognitive behavioral approach and all therapists are trained in the tenets of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Therapists help students learn and practice key life skills that will help them navigate life both inside and outside of the classroom. They provide conflict mediation, crisis intervention, anger management and behavior modification programs. Through therapy, students receive the psycho-social and emotional support necessary to grow into resilient, thriving young adults. We strive to provide a vibrant and positive culture where teachers and therapists engage with every student to build trusting and meaningful relationships.
Upon enrollment, each student at LOGOS is assigned a therapist. The therapist collaborates with the student to develop academic and therapeutic goals and provide support to meet their identified goals.

The behavior intervention programs serve as an additional therapeutic resource. It takes a village and the Student Support Center (SSC) and Therapeutic and Academic Support Center(TASC) programs support the individual and group counseling that is occurring on a weekly basis. SSC provides brief therapeutic intervention and allows a student an opportunity to process an incident that is immediate in a safe place where they can readjust and then return to their classroom.
Part of the SSC space has also been converted into a sensory room. The sensory room is equipped to help students enhance concentration, attention and alertness. Optical, acoustic and tactile stimuli in the room will help students learn to self sooth, direct their focus and deal with real-life encounters in a healthy way.
TASC is available to students in need of extended therapeutic support. In TASC, students are expected to complete academic assignments and process the social, emotional and/or behavior challenges that lead them to TASC.
