Mission Statement

THE ERVIN ACADEMY

Vision

The Ervin Academy will nurture and develop "at-risk" adjudicated and non-adjudicated high school males to produce self sufficient contributing members of society.

Mission

The Ervin Academy will provide programs and services that are academically rigorous, character and socially developmental to ensure an increase in the number of male high school graduates. Each student will be equipped with the skills necessary to pursue a college education, post secondary training, or pursue a professional career with the technical and soft-skills necessary to be competitive in today’s employment and business market.

The above Vision and Mission are founded upon our core beliefs that:

  • Each student can learn
  • Each student can be transformed
  • Each student can contribute positively to society
  • Each student deserves support
  • Each student deserves greater and additional opportunities
  • Each student will be successful

Description

We will be the first academic theraputic boarding school, in the southeast, of its type, for high school teen males who are assigned to either/and the juvenile and foster care systems in early 2015.

In addition, we are proud and honored to hold the distinction of being the first mentoring and leadership program that the State of Georgia's Department of Juvenile Justice has partnered with to assist supporting its teen male client population since 2010.

Many of our mentees have obtained their high school diplomas, ceased the destructive behaviors and are successfully matriculating in college and/or several other secondary education programs while becoming productive contributing members of society.

The boarding school's mission it to ensure that our students are provided with all of the tools necessary to succeed in society and not enter the adult legal system.
