Denise Achée has developed and pioneered the educational program at Inspirations since its inception seven years ago. Denise works as the liaison between the parents, teens, and their perspective schools. Together they work to devise an academic plan, with the intention to keep the teens on track academically, or get them back on track while in treatment. Each teen’s learning style is assessed and a curriculum devised to coincide with their treatment.

What will your teen be learning?
Here is a sampling of what will be offered academically at the Back-on-track summer program:
As a group teens will read several books from standard high school summer reading lists. As they are reading they will be building vocabulary skills by underlining and defining words. By reading as a group teens will be improving their word recognition and pronunciation while also expanding their vocabulary. The last 10 minutes will focus on summarizing what they have read as well as a group discussion of relevant topics in literature.
Brain Building and Critical Thinking Skills
Teens can build memory and critical thinking skills with computer-based ‘games’ that teach while you play!
You are what you eat! Nutrition exposes teens to healthy eating habits, the benefits of juicing, cooking demonstrations, and interactive participation including “How To” video creation, filmed by and starring teens!
Summer Life Skills
The summer life skills program will be a mix of real life material such as career exploration and financial understanding and responsibility. It will begin with a discovery of personality traits and which careers may suit each personality. Teens will be introduced to math applications in topics such as payroll, credit and debit cards, mortgage and loan financing, college loans, and budgeting to live independently.
The lessons will last no more than one week per unit so that new teens coming in will not require prior knowledge. The material will come from various sources including a high school financial algebra text and CD program from the spell out Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
Creative & Artistic Interpretations of Summer Reading
Encourage reading through creative outlets and artistic expression. Through art, poetry, movement, music, design, short plays, video, and other avenues we explore an individual’s need to express, create, and be heard.
Teens learn to cope with stress through meditation, chi gong, aromatherapy and breathing techniques. Summer Life Skills
Through a mix of real life material including career exploration, financial understanding, and personal responsibility, teens will develop skills to use in their everyday lives. Education: Earn credits! Get back on track! Get ahead!
