School

Our highly individualized school is run by a certified teacher, and employee of the Vancouver School Board. Whenever possible, contact is made with the home school of each new resident before they arrive at Peak House. Contact is maintained throughout their stay at Peak House in order to ensure, as much as possible, a smooth re-entry back to their community school.

The youth and teacher will determine together what educational plan would best suit the resident’s needs. For those young people who are not in school upon arriving in the program, considerable time is spent throughout their stay exploring new alternatives. We try to ensure that every resident has a workable school plan in place upon completion of the program. ¬†Academic instruction takes place Monday/Tuesday/Thursday and Friday for 1.5 hours in the morning.
