JTC Academy West
JTC Academy was founded in 2007, about eight years after our residential center, Juvenile Transitional Center Inc., started its operations in 1999 at St. Mary’s Hospital. JTC Academy has evolved and grown since then, and we currently operate two fully functioning therapeutic day schools, one of which is now our Autism Program -JTC Academy West. Both programs focus on serving adolescents in need of intensive and extensive behavioral and psychotherapy treatment while focusing on evidence-based instruction to provide our youth with the well-rounded education they deserve. Our ASD program, in particular, works with students on the autism spectrum struggling with emotional, social, and behavioral issues.
JTC Academy’s mission is to create a nurturing and challenging environment where all students achieve success, develop personal responsibility, and become lifelong learners. We promote a partnership with students, parents, businesses, and the community; utilize effective teaching methods and current technology; employ only highly qualified staff licensed by Illinois and provide quality, comprehensive academic, career, and life-skill experiences.”
