At Tennyson, we aim to help build stronger and healthier kids and families. Kids like Gilbert, who started his senior year of high school believing he couldn’t graduate. No one else in his family had graduated, and he was sure that he’d follow the same path. After a few months at Tennyson, Gilbert gained a new perspective and finally believed in himself. In May of 2019, Gilbert became Tennyson’s first high school graduate in history.
It’s the growth and achievements of kids like Gilbert that make Tennyson special. Many students arrive at our K-12, school-based, day-treatment program having experienced complex trauma. By integrating social, emotional, behavioral, and academic learning into the program, our students see tremendous growth. During the 2019/2020 year, we saw a 52% increase in reading proficiency and a 40% increase in math proficiency which are enormous achievements for students who typically arrive at Tennyson two to three years behind in school.
Outside of our day-treatment program, we also offer a multitude of child and family therapy services that provide support across Colorado – and beyond. Our wide array of community programs offer support to children, teens, adults, parents, families, foster families, and parents-to-be.
