Hospital Agency Programs

MPS Metro HA programs provide educational services to students who are currently enrolled in M Health/University of Masonic Children’s Hospital day treatment programs. Through a partnership with the hospital, students are able to attend a school-based program, in which their educational and treatment programs are co-located within the hospital setting. The program serves student in both mental health and dual diagnosis programs. These day treatment programs serve students who mostly reside in MN and WI.

Our k-12 students are on a shortened school day with an emphasis on Reading/Literacy/English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. K-8 students participate in one classroom, while our 9-12 students rotate between three, 42 minute periods. School work is individualized according to student needs. Our students spend the rest of their day in group and individual therapy provided by the hospital agency. Our classroom are staffed by one Minnesota State Licensed teacher, who is dually licensed in regular and special education. Hospital staff are available for additional support when needed.

The school day is generally from 8:00-2:30
