White’s Residential & Family Services is pleased to announce a change made to our academic program to better meet the educational needs of students in care and placing agency goals. To provide greater flexibility, individualized care, more home visits, and reduce length of stay, White’s has made innovative changes to the existing traditional residential school program. Our current educational success here at White’s across all our programs has proven our commitment to helping students reach their highest potential.
We are still an accredited public school through the Indiana Department of Education, staffed with licensed teachers. But now, we offer a new on-line Credit Acceleration/Recovery Program (CA/RP) that lets students enroll at any time throughout the calendar year and receive transferable credits. The students will also be enrolled in a physical education course for lifetime fitness. Our Jr./Sr. High School will continue to offer the highly successful GED course of study which will be enhanced by the CA/RP program. Also, the Work-Related Education program (WRE) will continue to be an important part of the school’s educational curriculum.
Another change is a new year-round school calendar. This new calendar allows for a seamless curriculum for students who enroll or withdraw throughout the calendar year. All students will attend school Monday through Thursday, with some students being required to attend classes on Fridays. Those students attending Friday School will have the opportunity to work on their academic coursework while their classmates participate in recreational activities through the residential program.
