Student Profile

Northwest College Support provides truly individualized support for young adults of many walks of life. This often includes students that are stuck at home, have had past college attempts or are leaving other residential or wilderness programs and who require transitional support into the world of college and/or vocational paths. Since we are able to provide single apartment/house living environments, or housing with only 1 or 2 roommates, we are able to provide unique treatment plans and services to a broad array of students at different places in their treatment and school careers. All without the effects that come along with larger milieu environments. Students are challenged with developing cognitive skills, social skills, independent living skills, learning about their own learning style, vocational and world of work skills, self-regulation, and forming healthy relationships.
