The Top 110 Schools & Programs in the network of private parent-choice residential schools and programs for struggling teens.

The following list of schools and programs are those that have the best reputation among Independent Educational Consultants who make a living helping parents find the best school or program for their children needing that kind of residential help.

Every year we survey the leading Independent Educational Consultants asking them to mark those schools and programs they feel provide an effective and safe intervention for the appropriate children. What we are doing is measuring the reputation of these schools and programs among picky and demanding professionals who are always looking for good quality. Making good recommendations is how their educational consulting practices survive. We collate the responses for the more than 500 schools and programs we are trying to track, score and rank them. The following are those that scored in the top one hundred and it would be a fair statement that there is a consensus that these are good quality schools and programs, of course for the appropriate child.

More information on each one of these schools and programs will be available in the series of digital ebooks that we will be publishing soon to replace the single print volume we have published in the past. The title THE PARENT EMPOWERMENT HANDBOOK™ we will continue to use. To be notified when they are published, please Subscribe to receive our notices. - Lon
