Dogwood Campus Education

Most of the children on campus attend school in the 14,500-square-foot Morris-Wilson Campus School and Activities Center, which includes a gymnasium and swimming pool for recreational therapy.

The school is state-accredited and designed to meet the challenges of educating children with emotional and behavioral problems.

Special education teachers and teacher-assistants provide individualized assessment and instruction. Classes are small and our teachers focus on helping their students catch up academically and learn proper classroom behavior.

Some children attend public school in preparation for their transition back home.
