Treasure Coast Academy emphasizes individualized learning
We believe that a Christian worldview and a traditional education are needed for teens who have previously had a poor or undisciplined educational experience, leading to a lack of preparation for their own future. While enrolled here, students are required to work on their courses all weekdays, catching up for lost time and retaking failed or low-grade courses.
School here is year-round, which allows students to achieve phenomenal progress towards high school completion and beyond. Our educational atmosphere spurs a desire to succeed, which gains momentum and encourages the student to reach their full potential.
We use a fully accredited online middle and high school curriculum, certified by COGNIA, the highest accrediting body for schools in the United States. Our commitment to quality education is a top priority. Professional transcripts and progress reports are maintained and available upon graduation from this Teen Challenge program.
Our educators and support staff strive to match the client’s courses with courses from their primary school. Courses here include core curriculum, honors, college preparatory, and elective classes. We work closely with the parents and students to design an individualized program of study that best supports the child’s past educational progress and future educational or career goals.
Highly qualified teachers help our students become independent while building strong academic and problem-solving skills. Our academic program teaches each child’s strengths and enables our teachers to intercede when conditions indicate help is needed. Close supervision, the latest education technology, and individual workstations support and motivate students to continue their education while in our behavioral program. Individual tutoring is also available in the classroom for specific subjects.
Our academic program includes:
• Fully Transferable Credits
• Cognia Accreditation
• Latest Technology
• Optional Tutorial Services
• Low Student-to-Teacher Ratio
• Skill Building
• Educational Remediation
• Credit Recovery
• College Preparatory Courses
• GED/SAT/ACT Preparation
In our school, students thrive on our structured schedule. They have milestones and assigned times for class. Our year-round educational routine is focused on the educational basics, but it also emphasizes time management skills, responsibility, and accountability. Academic expectations are taken seriously, and our students discover a sense of pride in succeeding with each new educational level.
Our academic program builds self-control and self-discipline in our students — two character traits that will help them succeed in every aspect of their life. They discover true satisfaction from attaining good grades, through hard work, and self-pacing. Self-confidence is a major benefit of our educational system, which helps our students transform into productive and cultivated adults upon graduation and beyond.
Our math subjects are enhanced by IXL.com which provides grade-level practice problems per math concept that ensures a student’s mathematical confidence.
TCBA also uses others tools such as Reading Plus, which has been shown to improve the reading level of a high school student. 95% of our graduates attain university reading level, showing a dramatic change in their comprehension abilities.
Once a student graduates high school, they immediately transition into general education courses with Indian River State College online. Students have the ability to keep a collegiate pace while attending TCBA. This offers the opportunity to students who have graduated to continue to move forward in academic excellence while they are enrolled with TCBA.
11th and 12th-grade students are allowed to sign up for SAT prep courses two months in advance of the test date. This preparation will teach them test-taking skills, and critical thinking, and broaden their vocabulary base. With this preparation, these students are ready to take the SAT with confidence to perform at maximum potential, which is necessary for college entrance.
