The Academy of Class
The Academy of CLASS creates an opportunity for participants to build strong relationships with trained mentors, learn to balance their lives and achieve healthy independence. We support teens through our unique mentoring program that teaches success strategies, instills healthy habits and promotes goal setting.
Unlike other programs that are fundamentally based on theory, our methodology is based on hands-on experience with teens, parents and institution and choosing the approaches that have worked best and providing results.About AOC
