JTC Academy East High School


At JTC East High School, we work with students to get them caught up with their academics while focusing on social-emotional skills. Transitioning skills and coping skills are  also immersed throughout the program for each student while working to reintegrate students back into their regular high school.

Token Economy 

Research suggests that token economy systems are a great tool to motivate students on a short term and potentially long term basis. Our students earn points that turn into cash so that students can either use immediately or save for a larger item like a PlayStation or expensive sneakers. Our student store has an enormous selection of items to purchase on-site and catalogues to order from. Students may choose what form of point conversion they choose to use.

NOTE

While the above is an excellent incentive, it is just one of the many therapeutic interventions we use. Long term sustained success is our goal and to accomplish this, a meaningful treatment plan, academics at the student’s instructional level and teaching therapeutic coping skills is required. Only providing token economies will not last long term if these other components are not in place. 

**Be wary of programs that advertise or focus on giving students money to attend school, etc. 

 When choosing a therapeutic program/school, make sure an individualized treatment plan is in place by a licensed clinician, academics are at the student’s instructional level (not below) and take a tour of the facility and ask questions. 


Students typically appropriate for JTC Academy East High School are students that have a history of chronic, inappropriate, and highly disruptive external behaviors.  These students are often behind in their academics compared to their peers which in turn, creates the profound need for a structured, consistent and well-organized learning environment so that academic instruction is maximized and the learning gap between our students and their peers is minimized.


We build relationships with our students and focus on solutions. Our staff receive intensive training to meet the very high expectations of JTC Academy’s Therapeutic Program. We do not use police officers at JTC as they often trigger youth.
