Muir Wood Learning Center is a WASC-Accredited Supplemental Learning Program. Our program provides supplemental and tutorial instruction to students in seventh through twelfth grades. The WASC accreditation allows Muir Wood to confer Certificates of Completion for hours completed in Physical Education and Health Studies.
Options for Study at the Muir Wood Learning Center.
- The most common academic option is for your son’s school of record to provide independent study work while he is with us at Muir Wood. This option ensures a smooth transition back to school upon discharge from Muir Wood. It is the parents’/guardian’s responsibility to coordinate an independent study with the school of record. Once there is authorization to communicate with the school, our teachers can facilitate the transfer of schoolwork and support your son’s academic achievement while in residence at Muir Wood. In anticipation of the independent study, please remember to bring your son’s textbooks and materials at the time of admission to Muir Wood.
- A second option for your son to stay on an academic track is to enroll him in an accredited online learning program. Our teachers and your sons’ school of record can work collaboratively in choosing the appropriate and most advantageous coursework to ensure that your son is academically productive while in residence. It is our recommendation that you initially enroll your son in only one course while in treatment at Muir Wood.
While in residence at Muir Wood, your son will attend class at the Muir Wood Learning Center Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Our objective is to provide a safe and supportive learning environment where your son has the opportunity to be academically challenged, engaged and productive.
Access to computers and the internet is intended for schoolwork only, therefore usage is highly supervised and available only during class hours. Additionally, at the end of each week, our teachers provide parents with an Academic Progress Report that summarizes his time in class. Our teachers are also available for office hours during the week to discuss your son’s academic needs, study plan or to review his individual academic progress report.
