High School Graduate Curriculum

Evidence-based research strongly supports that self-esteem, meaning and purpose in life, and level of education and training are vital factors in achieving and sustaining long-term recovery for emerging adults.

At Life of Purpose, our high school graduates have the option to advance to a college or university or to enroll in a vocational or certification program of their choice. Our academic case managers provide the support and guidance high school graduates need to discover and move toward their purpose.
