Schools & Programs to meet YOUR needs

Early Intervention Schools – Educational and counseling services for students from elementary through high school.  Our schools offer the common core curriculum as well as special education programs.  Students are referred from their sending school/district liaison. Attendance is mirrored to a typical school day and for a minimum of 5 weeks.  Standard review periods are held to determine whether student is prepared for transition to district school or to remain enrolled for additional assistance with behavior and academic growth.

TAP (Twilight Academy Program) – is designed to provide a structure and individualized program to assist high school students with the accelerated acquisition of credits towards graduation.  Students can achieve a maximum of two credits per school year, attending TAP during after school hours from 2:30PM to 5:30PM.  The goal for students during their tenure is to continue with their academic instruction in order to graduate with their age-appropriate senior class.

Alternative To Suspension – is a program designed to work with students during their suspension days.  Successful completion of their school day at the designated sight will help students to understand the importance of appropriate decision making.  Students who do not attend or do not successfully fulfill the school day(s) will receive the suspension.

Student Support – A behavior support program  providing students strategies and interventions needed to address their behavioral and academic challenges.  Maximizing strengths and minimizing weaknesses will aid in students’ ability to pro-actively exhibit a positive attitude and willingness to succeed in their educational and behavioral goals.  AFOF staff work within the district school building to provide support and behavioral intervention.

Take Time – An in-school support to provide students additional resources with academics, and social/emotional skills development.  AFOF Take Time staff will work with district-school staff on special projects to enhance the productivity of positive pro-active incentives; as well as service designated students needing additional supports for reaching optimal success.  Family intervention, staff support, and student success are the driving force behind the Take Time Program.

RCubed – An in-school alternative providing students an opportunity to Reset their decision making process to Reflect appropriate choices in order for them to Return to their traditional classroom.  Providing middle and high school students the chance to Reset, Reflect, Return will offer the needed incentive to complete their high school education and hopefully a smooth transition into college.

Journey – works with students in the redirection of behavior.  This short term program targets students in middle school that are starting to exhibit behavior that may lead to chronic behavior and classroom disruption. The program is three weeks in duration and is designed to provide academic instruction, improve motivation and attitude. The students participate in an intensive counseling program that offers resources for them to make more appropriate choices. Academic work is provided by the sending school and the goal is for the student to complete the program and return to their district school with additional insight and knowledge to complete their education successfully.

Homework Club – is an after school program offering students an academic assistance session one to two evenings per week. Students receive homework help and remedial instruction as well as guidance with their school reports and projects. High school students have the opportunity to participate in SAT/PSAT preparation, resume writing, interview techniques, and assistance in searching for the college of their choice.

TOOLS (Teaching Others Optimum Learning Strategies)
This 6-session workshop provides follow-up for families and children to improve communication, anger management, self-esteem, motivation, and family interaction. The goal is for children and parents to participate in activities and sessions to help them to be productive, and that the family is provided resources that will help the family unit to work together as a group and develop a tool chest of alternative strategies. At the final session, families receive their resource ‘tool chest’ that they have been building for 6 sessions to include handouts and information pertinent to each night’s topic as well as contact information for important services.
