About and Services

Our Mission

It is the mission of Seacoast Youth Academy’s Group Care Intensive Services High Management program to provide the highest quality residential services for children, using a holistic approach which emphasizes the enhancement of social, emotional, and academic development in a safe, nurturing environment.

The goal of the Group Care Intensive Services program is to stabilize, then transition children to less restrictive environments, ensuring that every child gets the most appropriate and comprehensive clinical intervention. Additionally, transition planning is viewed as a primary focus to success and begins early in care, remaining an essential component to a child’s progress toward discharge.

Children enrolled in the program benefit from the expertise of multidisciplinary professionals committed to the attainment of optimal well-being, with sustained results for each child served.
