Who We Help

Our students

CAAEL students range in age from 11-21 and represent a broad variety of challenges, abilities, race, socioeconomic backgrounds, and cultures. 

CAAEL students, so at risk of failing, have been removed from their mainstream schools and placed in alternative schools so their behavioral and/or emotional challenges can be addressed.

Typical CAAEL students may be:
