Educational Philosophy Needs
We believe that education is an extremely important part of the clients’ development both in and out of a school setting. We realize that some children are likely to choose a traditional high school and college education while others may want the General Education Degree or vocational school approach. Education can open up many opportunities as well as provide life skills for their future financial support. We encourage education as part of the individual client’s goal setting and provide support for this important function. We provide or arrange for tutoring as needed.
FSR encourages recreational involvement and therefore incorporates a myriad of recreational and athletic activities into its total treatment environment. These activities are implemented to introduce the youth to meaningful leisure-time pursuits in order to provide outlet for energy and for direction of feelings such as anxiety, anger, etc., and to develop sportsmanship and teamwork. Good, positive role-modeling is essential throughout these programs so that clients experience completion, accept challenges, and strive to have fun while developing their minds and bodies
