St. Vincent Prep Academy
Ensuring Long-Term Success
St. Vincent Prep Academy is a short-term solution for the preschool age child with behavioral issues. Throughout our program, each child will learn new behaviors that will allow him/her to move on to kindergarten with confidence. On average, a child is in our program for 3-6 months.
Once a child has successfully completed our program and is ready to move on, our staff will develop a Behaviors Support Plan that will provide helpful information and action steps for the new school to implement. Our goal is to ensure continued success and growth, based on what the child has learned at St. Vincent Prep Academy. Our staff will work with the child, the child’s family and the staff at the new center during the transition time while he or she adjusts to the new environment.
St. Vincent Prep Academy’s success is centered around an individualized support program that encourages positive behaviors and provides the educational opportunities that each child deserves. Our program offers the following unique features:
