What Makes Us Different
At The Charlton School, we reject the notion of subscribing to a specific treatment model. Through years of trial and error, we’ve come to realize that subscribing to a model often leads to a diluted individualized approach and treatment efficacy. At The Charlton School, we truly approach each student and her struggles as unique, and we develop compensatory strategies collaboratively. Also unique to our program is an endowment that allows The Charlton School to offer after care and post-secondary educational scholarship opportunities to our residents.
