At Millcreek of Magee, a behavioral disorders treatment facility in Mississippi, we believe that is important in the lives of children and adolescents. However, some children and adolescents have difficulty succeeding in some school settings. Additionally, some young people struggle with psychological, behavioral, emotional, or cognitive concerns that hinder learning when not receiving education in a more therapeutic and supportive environment. Because of this need, Millcreek of Magee has created therapeutic day school programs at our treatment facility that allows these types of children and adolescents to succeed and learn in a manner that takes into account the unique challenges that these young people face.

Children and adolescents between the ages of 6 and 21 can access these programs and receive academic instruction from Highly Qualified Licensed Teachers at our treatment facility in Mississippi. The size of our classrooms is small so that every young person can receive adequate attention in order to maximize learning. Additionally, student aids are available and can assist students if it is deemed necessary for a child or adolescent’s success. Meals are provided for young people in school-based day treatment programs at our facility.
