GIVING KIDS HOPE AND A SECOND CHANCE
McAdams Academy is an alternative education program serving youth who have been expelled or have received a long-term suspension. The program is limited to Sedgwick County youths who are moderate to high risk for offending, as rated through the risk assessment tool (YSL-CMI or JIAC Brief Screen).
The ABC's of our program are
Academics, Behavior, and Community.
Students receive academic services through an online accredited curriculum which allows them to earn transferable high school credits during their expulsion period.
The behavioral component teaches students social skills needed to return successfully to a traditional educational environment.
The third element is Community Engagement. Our students learn life skills which help them become productive citizens. We also provide counseling and teaching that ministers to the whole family.
