NorthStar Educational and Therapeutic Services, a member of the Georgia Network for Educational and Therapeutic Supports (GNETS) is a comprehensive treatment program which serves children with severe Emotional/Behavioral disorders from birth through 21 years of age.
The nature of the services depends upon the individual education plan for each child. School-age service consists primarily of psychoeducational class placement. Students enroll in classes at the center instead of going to their regular school on a full or part-time basis. Emphasis is given to social-emotional growth and helping students master basic academics as defined by Georgia Performance Standards and / or the Georgia Quality Core Curriculum. Field trips and day and overnight camping experiences are offered and provide additional opportunities to reach individual goals.
