Coastal Learning Center offers the Short Term Educational Placement, or STEP program, for students
ages 5-21. The program provides educational and counseling services for students who require a
temporary educational placement while suspended from their home school district.
The Counseling Program covers an array of issues that include anger management, conflict resolution,
assertiveness training, substance abuse, grief and loss, low self-esteem, and social skills. These issues
are addressed by trained LCSW and MSW Counselors in Individual and Group Counseling.
Our classrooms are have a maximum 12 students. Each class is staffed by a Certified Teacher with at
least one Teacher Aide. Weekly progress reports and phone contact communicate the student's
development to their parent or guardian.
Our goal is to facilitate the student's return to public school.
