Taking Care of Your Child
Many of our students arrive at the Academy under the care of a physician, or psychiatrist, who has ordered daily medication for both Clinical/Medical Therapy. Our registered nurse and or staff medical coordinator works with these professionals to make certain medications are disbursed accurately and in a timely manner.
