Our Philosophy

All individuals have the potential for learning regardless of the type or degree of impairment. Students in need of individualized, prolonged assistance require a more intensive and specialized program of skill development to attain their full potential.

The Whitney Academy s program is designed to provide quality treatment and education to meet this need. Students at Whitney are treated and taught as individuals with special consideration and respect for their uniqueness and individual differences. They learn skills that give them an opportunity to grow and enable them to become more fully functioning members of society

The Whitney Academy’s purpose is twofold:

The provision of quality educational, residential and clinical services to its students
The preparation of students for re-entry to and success in their communities of origin or new communities,
utilizing humanistic treatment and environments that maximize healthy development.
