Uspiritus is a psychiatric residential treatment center and private child care residential facility for adolescents and children in need of intensive therapeutic support to overcome the effects of abuse, neglect, or other family crisis situations. The Brooklawn campus includes an on-site educational program operated by JCPS. The school program is designed to enable students to make a successful transition to a public school.

  • Population Served: Boys and girls ages 13 to 18 (grades 6 through 12)
  • Specific Characteristics: Students who are currently unable to attend a regular Jefferson County public school
  • Maximum Enrollment: 130
  • Average Length of Stay: 6 to 12 months
  • Uspiritus follows the JCPS school calendar and includes a summer program.

 

Brooklawn School offers an individualized treatment program that includes school, individual and group therapy; family therapy; and recreational activities. In the school, we provide the following:

  • A safe learning environment for each student
  • An individualized program of basic skills and remediation where necessary
  • Small-group instruction with fully certified teachers
  • Behavior management that teaches acceptable social and academic behaviors so that the students may return to their homes and regular public schools
  • Vocational classes in auto technology and horticulture

All youth admitted into the program must be referred through Uspiritus. Some residents are committed to the Cabinet for Families and Children. Some are referred by social workers, medical personnel, and/or parents/guardians. Private referrals are also accepted.
