Oak Valley Center's primary focus is on student academic achievement and personal growth through a rigorous program that strengthens each student's self-concept and develops pro-social skills.  Our goal is to help every student become a more confident learner and make a successful transition back to their least restrictive environment. Oak Valley Center's educational and counseling staff in partnership with the student (where appropriate) and their family, work with their Local Education Agency (LEA) and community professionals, in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 to develop an Individualized Education Program designed to meet their academic, social/emotional and behavioral needs. Oak Valley Center's Behavior Management Program is a positive reinforcement program that encourages students to take responsibility and ownership of their actions, as they grow towards becoming self-sufficient and productive individuals.  Oak Valley Center's experienced licensed clinical therapists work with the student and their family to assist with crisis intervention, problem solving, collaboration and to provide reports on student progress.  Oak Valley Center presents a social skills curriculum in a group setting, introducing values such as honesty, conflict resolution, communication skills, problem solving, self-care, self-reliance, self-discipline and dependability.  Oak Valley Center's comprehensive academic instruction is designed to meet the expectations of the Virginia Standards of Learning and Common Core Standards.  Work readiness skills are taught in our Post-Graduation Skills class.
