Our program provides discipline in which we utilize a client-centered approach and a whole person philosophy to encourage stability and personal responsibility. By engaging troubled teens with a holistic approach, we address the physical, educational and psychological obstacles that invade in the daily lives of troubled teens and children. Our staff utilizes a highly structured, rigid program that is like no other in the nation. Alternative Youth Academy is the only program of its kind in Georgia as recognized by juvenile justice agencies

Here at Alternative Youth Academy, we have a mental health division, which consists of a group of professionals who work with the troubled teens and children. We have psychiatrists, therapists and counselors onsite and provide services to our clients as a part of the program. If accepted into the mental health division, Financial Aid is offered for those who qualify, Health Insurance is accepted, and our team can help with the IEP funding for those that receive benefits. Clients are taught the importance of self-discipline, structure and integrity. Our program provides the resources to help Atlanta troubled teens, set goals and reach them. The program is designed in a way to help instill the importance of organization for reaching self-determined goals.

Additionally, we are also concerned about educational and learning disabilities and deficits for our clients. We work closely with troubled teens and children to help them achieve maximum educational progress while they are in residence. Self-study programs are supported by a rigid daily routine and interaction with tutors and instructors to help when needed.

Last, we care about each client, the client's family and the community. Keeping troubled teens and children engaged and limiting their free time improves their lives, brings relief to their families and makes our communities a better place.
