Academic and Vocational Education is a priority for our residents. All students are enrolled in credit-recovery programs at school, GED programs, college or vocational programs. Credit recovery allows our residents to get on the appropriate educational track, and in some cases, accelerate their education progress. Job and Career Development Planning allows the young parent to attain higher education or career training. This also allows for setting and achieving realistic vocational and educational goals.
Parenting Education and Infant and Child Development works to reverse destructive parenting patterns that typify our teens childhoods and replace them with positive attitudes and nurturing parenting skills. Seton Home residents participate in the Precious Minds New Connections Program, funded by the Kronkosky Foundation, which is composed of 12 weeks of group class and weekly individual parenting sessions. Parenting topics include empathy, appropriate discipline, redirection, self-esteem, respect and empowering children
Independent Living Skills Education is taught by Independent Living Skills Instructors, who provide 24-hour care and supervision to our teens and infants. Teaching includes housekeeping, nutrition, menu planning and cooking, personal and child health care, personal hygiene, household budgeting and utilizing community resources.
