Normal, healthy, capable boys and girls, ages 13-18, who have run into trouble either at home or at school. Some of them come from dysfunctional or broken homes. Many of them have failed in their traditional schools. None of them are functioning at their full potential. A few of these children will be troubled children who will need, and receive, extra care and supervision.

Credits earned at Care Academy transfer to the other public schools in Kentucky, as well as schools nationally

After assessment and evaluation, services will be coordinated through a multi-disciplinary team and the youth's Comprehensive Individual Treatment Plan (CITP) to develop and accomplish goals for success.

Individual, group, and specialized counseling are built into the program to meet the needs of each youth. Therapeutic services include issues such as chemical dependency, anger management, mental illness, educational underachievement, coping and social skills, abuse and neglect, and emotional/behavioral disturbances. Disciplines in the areas of social work, psychology, psychiatry, education, art therapy, dietary, recreation and crisis intervention are demonstrated through a psycho-educational model for a youth's individual need. Aftercare services are available for coordination of continuing services once a resident has completed Care Academy's program to ensure successful transition back to the home and community.

Payment is usually through state or federal programs. However, before a child will qualify for state or federal payment, he/she must have either been removed from the home by the courts, must be a ward of the state, or must have qualified for state Medicaid money.

Some private health insurance providers will pay some of the cost, for children who suffer certain medical conditions.

Many parents will be required to pay this rate from their own private funds in order to get their child back on track.

Payment arrangements can be made.
