Our residential program provides a comprehensive treatment approach that includes behavioral/psychological care, education, medical care, and residential living to focus on decreasing aggressive and self-injurious behaviors, and increasing the child’s ability to achieve educational outcomes. If you are interested in exploring Heartspring, we suggest starting a dialogue with your child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) team to discuss if is an appropriate option.
How is the Heartspring School tuition paid?
The majority of the students who attend Heartspring are placed through the students’ IEP teams and funded by their local school district. Very few students qualify for funding through insurance providers. However, on a case-by-case basis, this may be possible. Some students have multiple agencies involved in the placement and in the funding (such as a school district, a child welfare agency, adoption subsidy, etc.). For some families, paying privately and/or outside financing may be an option. To learn more about outside financing, visit www.salliemae.com, or you may conduct an online search for education loans for private K-12 schools.
