Turnbridge Academy has the ability to support clients who are in a variety of different academic stages. From high school completion all the way to post-secondary education, the Turnbridge academic advisors are well equipped and experienced to enable resumption of academic progress.
Turnbridge Academy enables clients to enter colleges, and prepares colleges to welcome students in recovery.
While Turnbridge Academic Advisors have extensive experience coordinating educational plans with all of the local colleges and universities, there are two such institutions with which we have established special partnerships. At University of New Haven and at Albertus Magnus College, we have dedicated admissions officers trained in the needs of our clients to liaise with Turnbridge Academic Advisors. These admissions officers personally oversee the application or transfer process to ensure Turnbridge clients have access to their high-quality education, despite the potential lapses or deficits in their records attributable to substance use or mental health issues.
In addition to University of New Haven and Albertus Magnus College, we have experience liaising with Southern Connecticut State University, Quinnipiac University, Gateway Community Colleges, and have also coordinated distance learning programs through a variety of out-of-state schools.
Turnbridge also works with clients and colleges during the discharge planning process to ensure safe transitions from life in Turnbridge to life at college. College can be a trigger-rich environment for people in recovery and the prevalence of alcohol, drugs, and potentially harmful relationships may pose particular risks. Many colleges offer a variety of recovery support services. Turnbridge academic advisors and other members of the client’s care team will make arrangements to ensure that appropriate supports are available to students transitioning to college.
