Mill Springs Academy is a value-based educational community dedicated to the academic, physical and social growth of those students who have not realized their full potential in traditional classroom settings.
Mill Springs Academy provides a carefully structured environment within a warm, supportive atmosphere.
Our structural approach is a milieu environment that involves our Community Levels System, daily values groups, individualized contracts and Life Space Interview techniques.
Mill Springs Academy bases learning strategies on Academic Plans developed for each student by our multidisciplinary staff.
Learning strategies are generated from psycho-educational evaluations, previous school records, diagnostic skills assessment, observations, communication with other professionals involved with the student and our continuing experiences with the student.
Mill Springs Academy is committed to a comprehensive, holistic program design that is multifaceted to meet the needs of the “total child”.
