Pressley Ridge provides educational services for youth with serious emotional disturbances (SED) and youth with autism. At Pressley Ridge, education is collaborative, experiential, and most importantly, fun. We know that success at school is not only about grades. Our schools provide high quality programs that also develop trusting relationships, improve social skills, enhance self-control, and build on child strengths. Reaching these goals helps our youth to be active members of their communities. As such, our academic and behavioral services are not long term – the main goal of our programs is to return students to their home schools.
Pressley Ridge’s Pennsylvania schools serve students of all ages and needs. To find out more about the services we offer, please click on the links to each of our programs (below). Please also feel free to contact our schools if you have any questions or would like to schedule a visit.
