Children's Home of Kingston Day Program
We are a specialized school for young men grades 4-12. Our program is designed with a therapeutic program in mind, using academically-researched practices including restorative approaches and social-emotional learning skills. We work in close contact with our youth’s home school districts to develop learning and behavior plans (if needed) to meet student’s academic goals. The Grove Street Academy offers emotionally and learning-disabled students a structured, personalized, educational setting. Prescriptive and diagnostic strategies are developed to help students achieve educational goals established by New York State Standards and the student's Individual Education Program.
