This year-round accredited school program is fully integrated within the broader residential experience. Oak Plains Academy students attend daily classes for 6.5 hours of instruction. Highly qualified and carefully selected educators provide the academic instruction for all of the children and adolescents admitted to our program. This educational program is also individualized to meet the needs of each student while accommodating necessary Individual Education Plans (IEP) and GED requirements.
The official curriculum is guided and based upon the Tennessee Department of Education Standards of Learning and while at Oak Plains students can earn academic credits that can be transferred to their home school upon discharge. We also offer a summer program from the end of June through August. We believe that a child should be able to maximize his/her education in a nurturing and positive based, child-focused environment.
These programs are designed to provide the highest level of direct patient care that is possible, which includes physical, social, spiritual, medical and psychotherapeutic treatment interventions.
