    Adelphoi Education is licensed under PDE as a Private Academic School. The school provides an academic and therapeutic setting for students from surrounding public school districts who would benefit from a more structured and supportive learning environment. This supportive learning environment is responsive to behavioral and emotional factors that impede students’ academic success. Additionally, the school provides treatment to students who have been identified as needing emotional support services or who have experienced a trauma that is making it difficult for the student to cope with daily school functions. Referrals are made directly from the home school district.

    The Private Academic School offers a small classroom environment, with individualized attention to the students. Classrooms may hold up to 10 students, and include a PA dual certified special education/elementary education teacher, therapist and supervisor.

  • Partial Program

    • Male/Female, Grades 1-8
    • Location: Latrobe, Westmoreland County

    The Partial Program is a school-based program designed to accept children who require a higher level of structure and support than traditional mental health outpatient treatment, but who are not showing the level of acuity that would necessitate mental health inpatient treatment. This allows the child to remain at home in their community while receiving mental health treatment and educational support.

    Partial Program uses an interdisciplinary team approach to provide a well-balanced, effective treatment system. The goal of the treatment is to help students replace negative coping skills with pro-social and more effective behavior so that they can return to a less restrictive environment. The Partial Program treatment team consists of a psychiatrist, program supervisor, master’s level therapist, mental health specialists, academic support staff and a nurse. Treatment teams use an interdisciplinary approach by collaborating with families and school districts.

    For more information on Partial Programs, please contact Jennifer Zylka at 724-804-7211 or jennifer.zylka@adelphoi.org.
