Educational Program | Harborcreek Youth Services
Harborcreek Youth Services' educational program is licensed under the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Private Residential Rehabilitative Institutions (PRRI). We maintain a specialized educational facility on campus, staffed by Pennsylvania-certified teachers. Working in cooperation with the Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit and local area school districts, Harborcreek Youth Services has developed a highly structured, individualized and adaptive educational program that is designed to meet each student's needs. The curriculum and all related activities create a stable, consistent, and supportive learning environment that facilitates our clients' academic success.
The educational program curriculum includes:
- Language arts
- Social studies
- Physical education
- Employability skills
- Community service learning projects
Harborcreek Youth Services also offers a GED Program to older clients and those with limited success in traditional academic settings. The course of instruction prepares the student for taking the GED exam. The Work Experience Program (WEP) is available to all clients who are high school graduates or enrolled in the GED Program. WEP encourages our clients to develop a work ethic and occupational experience in a real work environment.
The Father Fahey Memorial Scholarship Program is available to current and former Harborcreek Youth Services students who continue their education at a technical school, college, or university.
