Mental Health

Students can receive one-on-one clinical services from licensed and trained psychologists through a long-standing service provider partner. In addition, this provider runs various student groups where both middle and upper school students can discuss various topics and issues. The middle school also employs a full-time social worker who provides direct support to students and families.

Academic Support

Making Waves Academy (MWA) focuses the attention of all faculty and staff on academic achievement for all students. To this end, various levels of MWA faculty, staff, administrator, and service provider time is spent identifying ways to address and support achievement for all students.
