During the residential treatment period, the adolescent will continue to engage in their studies through a coordinated effort between the school representatives, the parents, and the student. Schools are accustomed to providing a student’s syllabi and assignments through the academic counselors or other administration officials. While each school’s policies are unique, there are typically allowances made by the teachers for students who are legitimately excused for health-related purposes, including longer due date windows and the opportunity to make up missed exams if necessary. The BNI case management and treatment team will work with the school representatives and parents in coordinating schoolwork and delivering the completed assignments.
During treatment the student may require additional assistance with their schoolwork. To aid with this, BNI Treatment Centers provides on-site tutors as well as computer stations for the teen’s school use while in treatment. By providing these services the teen will not fall significantly behind their peers and can return to school and join their classes with confidence.
