The Family Foundation School is a private, therapeutic boarding school for teens at risk, serving grades 9 through 12. Offering a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum to students who have gotten into trouble at home, at school, and sometimes with the law that is registered by New York State Board of Regents, and accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and The Joint Commission. Most of the students are also academic underachievers. Many have been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, ODD, depression, or drug or alcohol abuse. Behavioral disorders include self-injury (cutting), promiscuity, eating disorders, and compulsive use of computers through either pornography or fantasy games.
A desire to help teens unites our staff and, regardless of position, every staff member is directly involved with students during part of the work week. Many of the staff members are in recovery and regularly share their experience, strength and hope with the students.
