New Haven Girls School Mission Statement:

Photo of Boarding School in Utah for Troubled GirlsNew Haven School is committed to creating an encouraging and challenging learning environment that enables students to become well-rounded, healthy, and productive life long learners.

New Haven's education goal is to get our students back on their grade level and transition back smoothly to another school setting or, graduate and move on to college.

Academic Plan:
New Haven will accommodate previously developed IEP’s in order to continue the individualized instruction to students with special needs. We will participate in quarterly goal evaluations with the home district to ensure the IEP is being followed and continues to be a valid document when the student returns to her public school.

We have a fully certified special education administrator that will oversee the IEP and tailor the student’s academic program to meet her specific learning style along with the necessary accommodations and modifications required in her classes.

The majority of our students take the SAT or ACT while attending New Haven. College counseling services are available. Students may receive help with picking colleges and preparing applications. 95% of the students that graduate from high school at New Haven go on to a 2 or 4 year college.

Beliefs:

* All students can learn.
* Each student can be an independent learner by demonstrating accountability for her education.
* The school faculty will provide positive role modeling and supportive assistance to the student’s emotional, intellectual, physical, and social needs.
* Through exposure to a variety of teaching methods, each student will identify her optimal learning style and learn to be successful in other learning environments.
* Each faculty member is committed to continual improvement of skills through participating in teaching observations, setting and achieving educational goals, and attending training in the areas of new educational methods and mental health.
* Student development and achievement will be facilitated by maintaining a progressive and up-to-date curriculum.

Our Philosophy:

Image of Boarding School in Utah for Troubled GirlsNew Haven provides the clinical support and environment that is needed for teenage girls to make positive and permanent changes. New Haven provides an individualized and unique values program. Our philosophy is built around six core values.

Love:
Your daughter can change and heal easier in a loving environment. New Haven's environment teaches her how to give and receive love and respect. We encourage her to express this love and respect for her family, divine source, employees, peers, society, animals and plants.

Locus of Control:
Your daughter's locus, or center point, of control is central to how she believes she can manage her own life. If she believes that she is being controlled externally (i.e, by family, luck, a perpetrator or society) she will lack a sense of personal control in her life.

Family:
The importance of the family system is evident in New Haven's treatment philosophy. We realize that long-lasting change in your daughter only occurs when your family can change in unison with her.

Selflessness:
The loss of self-esteem has much to do with the poor, selfish choices a person has made in the past. Ineffective attempts at feeling better about oneself can include the use of justification, rationalization, and other defense mechanisms that lead to depression, anxiety, and other emotional and behavioral disorders.

Values:
True happiness and peace are found when your daughter's behavior is in line with her values. Your daughter is encouraged to develop or remember her own value system and align her life with those values.

Spirituality:
We believe each human life is sacred. A person's spirituality - or sense of connectedness to something divine - is not only her essence of moral decision making but can also give her genuine purpose in life.

Types of Learning Styles addressed at New Haven::

Photos of New Haven Residential Treatment Center
Visual Learners:
These learners need to see the teacher's body language and facial expression to fully understand the content of a lesson. They tend to prefer sitting at the front of the classroom to avoid visual obstructions (e.g. people's heads).

Auditory Learners:
They learn best through verbal lectures, discussions, talking things through and listening to what others have to say. Auditory learners interpret the underlying meanings of speech through listening to tone of voice, pitch, speed and other nuances.

Tactile/Kinesthetic Learners:
Tactile/Kinesthetic persons learn best through a hands-on approach, actively exploring the physical world around them. They may find it hard to sit still for long periods and may become distracted by their need for activity and exploration.
