Many children and youth experiencing emotional and adjustment challenges also struggle for success in the classroom. Fox Run is committed to providing our youth with high quality educational experiences throughout their stay. Our school is operated by East Central Ohio Educational Service Center in partnership with the St. Clairsville-Richland City Schools, the Ohio School district within which the center is located. The education program is in compliance with Ohio Department of Education Standards, including special education provisions for students qualifying for Individualized Education Programs (IEP). Transferable credits will be submitted to the local school system upon a signed release and are recognized as a fulfillment of graduation requirements.
Education employees (teachers, administrators, therapists, and classroom assistants) are state licensed and have been carefully chosen to work in this supportive, individualized school setting with smaller classroom room sizes typically 4-5 students, that focusing on building relationships. Our school follows the child’s typical schedule and is in session from 8:00am to 3:00pm. Our Extended School Year includes summer school classes for 8 weeks.
We are proud to be the first residential facility to receive the 21st century grant for best technology supports available.
