Achieving Academic Success

RTC Classroom

Education is an integral part of our program. Many children and adolescents have had ​difficulty in ​school ​and need help and nurturing to bring their academic achievement up to ​grade level.

Our school program is licensed by the state of Nebraska and provides year-around classes. Each ​student is assigned to a classroom ​that accounts for age and academic/developmental level.
