Our Comprehensive Approach
Every Walden School student’s program is individually designed to build self-esteem and self-reliance through a combination of academics, recreation, leisure skills, a work-readiness program and a Career Technology Education Program.
Highly individualized trauma-informed care is the hallmark of Walden School. Each of our students has unique therapeutic and behavioral counseling needs, and each has their own individual treatment plan. Individual treatment plans are created for each student by a multidisciplinary team of experts including the parent or guardian, the Clinical Director, masters-level therapists, a clinical psychologist and a child psychiatrist, the student’s following teacher and a residential advocate.
TLC has two Nursing Offices located on campus designed to provide accessible care for pre-school, elementary, middle and high school students. Each office is staffed with Registered Nurses who work together under the leadership of the Health Services Director and in consultation with a pediatric physician and psychiatrist. Our Nurses take a positive, proactive approach in triaging health conditions.
Services include general assessments, medication management, coordination of critical care, preventive screenings and care for chronic conditions including asthma, diabetes and allergies.
Walden School students live, learn and play in a beautiful, modern campus setting. Our 13,000-square-foot facility is outfitted with recreation, dining, counseling and classroom areas. Students have access to The Learning Center’s two swimming pools, a playground and a full-sized gymnasium.
Walden’s consistent adherence to professional standards, efficacious teaching methods, and respect for the individual child and family should be a model for the nation. We all know that what makes a great school is the “it” factor of the teacher, residence staff, and the school leadership.
