Many parents hesitate to seek treatment because they worry about academics. Rest assured that your son will not fall behind in school if he joins ARCH Academy; in fact, he will recover in an academically focused environment. Our educational department ensures that each teen who enrolls in our treatment center receives personalized care and academic support tailored to their grade level.


Accredited Alternative School in Tennessee

We operate a fully accredited private high school just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Our programs range from grades 8 through 12 and include credit recovery options, as well as follow-up academic placement.

Advance a Full Grade Level. Statistics show that most teens in the ARCH Academy core curriculum advance an entire grade level while attending treatment.

Receive Close, Personal Attention. Our Director of Education works directly with each family to provide support and guidance throughout the treatment process. Parents are able to track their son’s personal and academic progress during his stay. 

Support for Graduation and Beyond. ARCH Academy proudly celebrates graduations for those who finish high school while in treatment. We also work in collaboration with collegiate recovery programs for our seniors, ensuring that sobriety and academic success are a part of their future.


What to Expect at ARCH Academy

Once your son arrives at ARCH Academy, a member of our education department will coordinate with his school. Additionally, all students receive a thorough academics needs assessment upon admission. This allows us to get a full picture of his grade history, which in turn opens up a variety of options and accommodations.

  • Continue current schoolwork: A member of our team can facilitate the coursework from your son’s current school, then transfer validated credits and progress back to his teachers.
  • ARCH enrollment: Your son can enroll directly into ARCH Academy. Our staff will then review previous coursework and credits before creating his specialized education plan.
  • Credit recovery: If your son joins ARCH during the summer months, he can participate in a program to complete a course that he previously failed or did not finish.
  • Enrichment and community service: If your son is out of school, the focus will be on various experiential and enrichment activities that pair with our recovery teachings.
