The Webb Young Adult Academy provides support to young adults with mental health issues as they transition from the high school world to college, work, and/or the community.
Some students may have completed (or nearly completed) their academic requirements, but are not quite ready for independence. Often immaturity, poor social skills, anxiety, or the need for specific skills make a successful transition beyond high school difficult.
This program serves young adults (18-21) who require additional clinical, academic, vocational, social, and/or life skills support to move to a more independent, adult situation. Students within the moderate to gifted range of intellectual ability who are motivated to prepare for a job, independent living, and/or further education can benefit from the direct and indirect services of specialized staff.
