Welcome to JTC Academy

JTC Academy creates a nurturing and challenging environment in which all students achieve success, develop personal responsibility, and become lifelong learners. We promote a partnership with students, parents, businesses, and the community; we utilize effective teaching methods and current technology; employ only highly qualified staff that are licensed by the state of Illinois and provide quality, comprehensive academic, career, and life-skill experiences.

Individual and Group Therapy

 Respect for others and personal responsibilities are essential for creating a productive learning environment and therapeutic milieu.  These essential skills are taught and practiced in group therapy sessions weekly.  

Individual Therapy at JTC Academy is conducted by Licensed Professional Counselors and a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist on staff. Prior to individual sessions, thorough assessments are conducted on each youth and information gained from these assessments is utilized to create individualized treatment plans that encompass a variety of counseling and therapeutic modalities and designed to meet the needs of each individual. 

Te​chnology

As we navigate through the 21st century, excellence in education requires that technology be seamlessly integrated throughout the educational program. JTC Academy believes that the primary learning tool for our students is through technology and therefore, all students are assigned a chrome book for their use through out the school year. As a way to empower our students to learn to their full potential and to prepare them for the real world of college and the workplace, technology is key. Technology also encourages students to solve problems and think critically by stimulating analytical thinking. Technology immersion does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. To the contrary, it transforms the teacher from a director of learning to a facilitator of learning. Teachers at JTC Academy incorporate technology by infusing technology into the curriculum for all subject areas. 

Relationship Building

Students reach their full potential through the cooperative efforts of the school and community and relationship building. JTC Academy staff believe that respect is not demanded but rather earned through a cooperative and caring respect between staff and student.  

Transportation

JTC Academy provides transportation services for school districts needing their youth transported to JTC.
