Marcy School, Day Rehabilitation Program

Program DescriptionMarcy mascot

Marcy School, a day rehabilitation program is an alternative high school for students whose underlying mental health issues impede their ability to benefit from an education within a comprehensive school setting.

The goal of the program is to offer sufficient educational supports to enable the student to return to a more traditional school environment. Following a period of stabilization of symptoms and behavior, students are eligible for dual enrollment at a comprehensive setting. Students will participate in course work and social activities at this site in the morning, and then return to Marcy for additional academic periods and therapy. Dual enrollment allows the student to acclimate to a less restrictive setting, while maintaining educational and mental health supports. Students who continue to demonstrate academic success and stability for the duration of dual enrollment will be fully transitioned to the comprehensive setting.
