Eastside Academy provides support structures and programs that minister holistically to at-risk youth. In order to help them address
the root causes of their struggles, we support the physical,
academic, emotional, relational, mental, and spiritual needs
of our students through the following programs.
Eastside Academy offers purposefully small class sizes to accommodate students’ varied needs, as well as instruction from teachers trained to work with at-risk youth.
Students struggling with addiction meet with peers in daily Recovery classes, led by a licensed counselor to help them in their sobriety.
Mental Health Counseling
All students participate in regular one-on-one counseling with professional counselors. In addition, counseling for all EA alumni is available.
As available, each student is paired with an adult mentor who meets with them once a week to listen, build life skills, offer support, and inspire change.
Alumni are offered college scholarships, career assistance, and access to all professional services offered by the school.
In partnership with BelPres Church, Eastside Academy offers two houses (one for boys and one for girls) to students who are homeless or dealing with challenges in their home lives.
