Edgewood Non-Public School

Edgewood's Non-Public School/Counseling Enriched Education Program 

Edgewood's Non-Public School/Counseling Enriched Education Program provides specialized academic instruction with intensive behavioral and therapeutic support to students between the ages of 6 to 21 who have had difficulty with success in a public school setting due to emotional and behavioral challenges.

Why is Edgewood's Non-Public School Necessary?

Edgewood's Non-Public School utilizes a strengths-based orientation to achieve academic success. Our team builds on each student's strengths to foster the emotional, social, and academic skills that are necessary to transition from Edgewood and return to a less restrictive school placement.
