For many of our students, school has always been a struggle because traditional instructional environments could not accommodate their learning needs. For others, academic challenges were a side effect of a substance use disorder. In either case, by the time they arrive at The Goodale School and Recovery Community, a private school for boys, our students have developed a negative association with school and limiting beliefs about themselves as students, both of which have likely been reinforced by their substance use and co-occurring disorders.
The academic program at The Goodale School is a critical component of the overall recovery experience. Our program
is designed to support, engage, challenge and inspire all students. Our goal is to help them discover their talents, connect with course content and understand themselves as learners, while earning credits which will transfer toward high school graduation.
