FIND THE RIGHT HELP FOR YOUR FAMILY
We specialize in identifying optimal educational and therapeutic solutions that meet the individual needs to assist students, struggling teens, and young adults in overcoming challenges to reach their full potential. Additionally, we advise, guide, and support families in crisis times through the process from beginning to end.
Whether your family is considering a traditional / day boarding school for students who learn differently, a wilderness, short-term assessment/stabilization program, a therapeutic boarding school, a residential treatment center, or a program for young adults, the choices can be daunting.
We save you time and resources with our broad knowledge of schools and programs, therapists, psychiatrists and psychologists.
“We are compassionate, committed and determined to help students, teens and young adults realize their full potential and lead productive and fulfilling lives.”
~ GAIL CURRAN, MS, MBA, OPTIMAL EDU OPTIONS FOUNDER
We offer a comprehensive and individualized approach to addressing clinical and educational needs in a continuum of care.
Traditional Boarding Schools
We thrive on the challenge of selecting the right boarding school for your student and help coordinate the admission process.
When you need individualized attention and first-hand knowledge of a variety of local schools (private, public, and charter) IOP, PHP programs, or life coaching young adults to independence, we will help narrow the possibilities and provide recommendations as well as assist in advocating on behalf of your student.
