Arch Bridge School 
Website: http://www.wellspring.org 
Address: 21 Arch Bridge Road
Bethlehem, CT, 06751
Description: The Arch Bridge School provides a therapeutic educational program for students from Wellspring's residential programs and for day students from area school districts. Core academics take place in a small group setting and are instructed by teachers certified in either special education or a subject area, supported by mental health / behavioral specialists. Emphasis is placed on providing a positive learning experience, resolving school related issues, and preparing the student to return to his or her home school better able to function successfully. The therapeutic dimension of the program offers a comprehensive exploration of the student's individual uniqueness while developing self-reliance, problem solving skills, socialization, and the ability to manage anger and stress. The fundamental approach of the Arch Bridge School is to develop a personal relationship with each student, within a clearly defined structure of expectations and consequences. Parental involvement is an essential component of the program. Parent Support Groups provide instruction and guidance to enhance parenting skills and offer an opportunity to share information and experience with others.

This program accepts day students and residential students referred by school districts. The program also provides services to residential students who have been placed by public agencies for other than educational reasons.
