Level III Main Campus

Elkins Mountain Schools Main Campus program is intended to serve youth with a long established history of impaired behavior at home, school, and in the community. In addition to behavior problems these youth often have other problems such as depression, trauma history, and/or substance use. Most have been provided less restrictive services (e.g.  counseling, medication) that did not result in necessary changes. Many are adjudicated as delinquent or status offenders. Some are transferred from higher levels of care to support continued transition in a secure and structured environment.

Level II (Oak Ridge)

Elkins Mountain Schools Oak Ridge program is intended to serve youth with a history of impaired behavior at home, school, and in the community. In addition to behavior problems, primarily opposition/defiant or disruptive, some also exhibit signs and symptoms of depression, have experienced trauma, and engage in substance use. Most have not responded favorably to less-restrictive interventions. Many are adjudicated as status offenders due to refusal to attend school or disobeying parental attempts to manage their behavior. Some are transferred from Level III programs to support continued transition to home or independent living programs.
