Day School at the O-School

For parents and students who may not need an intensive residential program, the O-School offers a Therapeutic Day Program for daytime-only school attendance.

Students attend the O-School as they would any regular daytime school and receive similar therapeutic support services and individualized attention. Day school students are fully involved in all aspects of the O-School’s culture.

The Therapeutic Day program can also act as a key part of the O-School’s continuum of care, as many families benefit from this option after participating in the Residential Program.
