SEE THE DIFFERENCE
Success in working with young men requires specific and unique areas of neurological, emotional, and physiological emphasis. At Equinox, we have created a culture and approach designed specifically to meet the needs of teenage boys.
Our academic setting focuses on smaller class sizes to individualize each students learning experience. Each Student has their own academic plan, and we help them learn based through various learning styles. Together, we rebuild student interest in school and improve academic performance, unlike a summer program for troubled teens.
Health and Fitness
When we feel good physically we feel better emotionally, and we think more clearly. Having recognized the importance of these findings, we have intentionally included numerous activities and interventions into Equinox programming that focus on the improvement of the physical health of the boys we serve.
Value of Service
Volunteer service work is a significant component of our residential treatment program. The boys participate in service twice a month, which gives them an opportunity to look beyond their own needs and give back to their community. In helping others, our boys often develop greater accountability and self-respect.
