FAQs

What does the transition back to school look like, after a student completes the program?

A student’s transition back to the high school will be determined on a student-by-student basis. Some factors that may influence the transition back to school may include: improvement coping with stressors, reports of decreased symptoms of their diagnosis, progress towards treatment goals, report of improvement of success in the home, etc.

Another factor may include peer relationships and the student’s ability to interact with others in a school setting. A Family Services therapist will setup a meeting with the family, Triumph staff, and representative from the school district to discuss what each student’s specific transition plan will look like.

Weekly updates regarding student progress both academically and in therapy will be provided to the key contact person. Additionally, the key contact person for each student will be notified in advance when a potential discharge date is approaching so that we can begin to work together regarding a successful transition for each student

What is the schedule like?

• Part-time programming: AM or PM option
• Various modes of transportation may be used based on student need
• (1) hour of group therapy daily
• Approximately 2.5 hours of academics daily
• Option for open campus for lunch

How does transportation to Triumph work?

Transportation will look different for each student. The home school district for each student will work closely with the Triumph staff and individual student in order to determine the best transportation route for each student.

Potential routes of transportation for students may include: district provided transportation, parent drop off, student driver, bus, medical transport, kids cab, etc.

Depending on the student’s immediate needs, mid-day transportation is an option for most students who will attend the Triumph program. If a student presents a situation where they are going to attend Triumph with an individualized schedule, the Triumph classroom teacher, the home school district, and the family of that student will discuss transportation options for that student.
