Three-Phase Therapeutic Program:

- All students participate in a Three-Phase program which begins the moment a student arrives at Sunset Bay Academy, starting with Phase One. Each phase has different strides that reflect a student’s progress within each phase. The student must complete each stride in order to graduate from the program. To advance in each stride and phase, a student must follow the rules, gain points and have staff and student support throughout each stride.

- To gain points, students must evaluate themselves on a daily basis to assess their own progress such as daily participation, attitude, teamwork, grooming and academic advancement. Each stage is meant to acknowledge growth and development as they work on building trust, self-confidence and leadership.

- Each student participates in extra-curricular activities, team sports, self-growth workshops and varied leadership opportunities. Sunset Bay Academy will assist your teen to transform their old behaviors by supporting their talents and enriching their academic experience with language and culture as well as their leadership.
