YFT’s Private Secondary School

YFT’s State and regionally accredited secondary school provides at-risk children a stable, supportive educational environment. Our school, grades 7-12, offers at-risk children an opportunity to live and learn together, outside their homes, within a stable and supportive environment.. The purpose of YFT’s school is to provide a way for young people to excel through high-quality education. Enrichment programs – including after-school tutoring, recreation, information technology, the arts, and clinical therapy– are offered on campus.

YFT’s school is well-regarded in the social services and education communities. Many social workers refer their children to YFT because of the opportunity to provide a residential education as a viable and important option for children, particularly teenagers.  Our students live in single-family homes on campus.
