Academics

Southern Plains Treatment Services has a focused academic program. All academic classes are taught by Norman Public Schools Certified Teachers. SPTS combines the academics of a school with the intensive therapy of an adolescent residential treatment facility. We offer our best in both therapy and education.

SPTS provides opportunities for students to reach their intellectual capacity and to become actively involved through various experiential learning activities. SPTS uses a collaborative learning environment where critical thinking is the focus. Teachers work closely with the therapists and residential staff to incorporate specific therapeutic objectives.

SPTS academic program is designed to maximize student learning, foster a joy of learning, and also utilize a unique credit recovery program. Success is achieved when academics enable students to gain increased self-esteem, self-awareness, self-confidence, self-reliance and self-management.
