Academics & Programs for Northwoods Students

Making the Grade

Every student that comes to our program has different academic needs. The reason that Northwoods is considered a quality, individualized educational opportunity is, in part, how we address these different needs. Northwoods provides a variety of educational options to suit each students and families needs.

With students ranging from 8th grade to the 12th grade, the academic opportunities need to be flexible and diverse. Students at our Sagle Farm and Costa Rica campuses are enrolled into the Forrest Bird Charter School in Sandpoint, Idaho and their K-12 online classes to meet their needs. Some of our students may later attend Forrest Bird Charter School as an on campus student.

These classes can be paced to meet the skill level of the student taking them. Instruction is provided and the students work with their teacher to set the pace for each class they take.

For the students at our Bonners Ferry campus there is an opportunity of attending public high school. The advantages of this are many. First the student is in a small school, 550 students, so the students don’t get lost in the system. Second it is a valuable piece in the reintegration process, allowing the young men to practice their skills in a public setting that is still controlled. The small school setting allows the students to get help and assists them in establishing a successful foothold on the academic and social portion of their transition.

Whether it is the self paced classes or the small public high school Northwoods has opportunities to fit a students individual academic needs. For Northwoods students, the classroom can truly be wherever they are.

Northwoods Music Program

Northwoods has found that students learning music can make advances in their school work, especially math. We also have found improvements including communication, problem solving, focusing and leadership skills.

Northwoods students may play guitar, keyboard, drums or a combination and are given practice schedules to follow.

We believe teaching the boys music not only promotes a positive outlet but builds a foundation of personal skill's they can apply anywhere.
