The Admissions Process
The individualized approach used at Penrith allows us to serve a wider population and address social, emotional, academic, and behavioral challenges in a unique and tailored fashion. Appropriate candidates are young adults, ages 18 and over, with a history of one or more of the following:
• Mild to moderate emotional and behavioral challenges.
• Addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.
• Self Esteem and Identity issues.
• Family of origin and adoption issues.
• Academic and/or vocational concerns.
• Problems transitioning to independence (Failure to Launch)
• Family conflict or difficulty with peer and social groups.
The first step is to make contact with our Our Program Director or Admissions Counselor by phone or email and get an initial screening to see if Penrith Farms can provide the help your young adult needs to succeed. We don’t often turn students or families away, but we will not admit students who are severely psychotic or delusional, extremely violent, or unable to care for their basic needs.
Then, our Admissions Team (Program Director, Admissions Counselor and one of our Therapists), will review your Application, any Psychological or Educational testing provided (recommended), and other materials (i.e. Letters of accountability, medical reports, special dietary needs). After reviewing all application materials, acceptance is based on a review of the student’s current level of functioning, past history of behavior and consultation with parents and professionals.
Call or email us to help you decide that Penrith Farms is the right choice for your son or daughter.
