Manito’s therapeutic Education Centersprovide a non-residential, community-based alternative for adolescents displaying behavior problems. Manito provides an integrated program of intensive therapeutic services combined with alternative education to include a holistic approach in addressing behavior problems.
Our centers follow a traditional school calendar and day. Manito is also an approved private provider of Alternative Education for Disruptive Youth Programs by the PA Department of Education.
Manito’s Alternative High School assists young adults to achieve academic skills and complete required academic credits toward a high school diploma. The Alternative High School is available for students 17 and older who have previously withdrawn from public school and now wish to return and complete requirements for a high school diploma. The curriculum utilized is competency based and allows students flexibility in gaining an education at a pace that meets their individual needs. Students may enter the program at any time of the school year. They can attend classes while continuing employment and other personal and family responsibilities. When high school requirements have been met, students receive a high school diploma from their home school district.
