We strive to create an environment that is structured enough to teach accountability for the consequences of choices,
enriched enough to foster healthy coping skills, safe enough to encourage attempts to change,
and supportive enough to develop the self-esteem, self discipline, and the motivation that makes success possible.
The education program is built around a concept of individualized instruction. The residents attend a self-contained classes located at the Breckenridge High School taught by EBD/LD teachers. Valley Lake staff help supervise the classroom and also provide tutorial assistance. Residents can also earn mainstream classes based upon behavior and school progress. They have the opportunity to make up classes or credits that they may have missed. Students may also work towards GED completion. Summer school sessions are held each summer. Valley Lake students have classroom access to accelerated math, reading, and writing programs.
