IF IT RAINS ON COMMUNITY SERVE DAY, this project will still take place!

San Pasqual Academy, a first-in-the-nation residential education campus designed specifically for foster youth, serves as a placement option for dependents of the Juvenile Court, 12-17 years old, and Non-Minor Dependents (NMDs) up to age 19 years old. A seamless delivery of services is provided through a public-private partnership between the County of San Diego, New Alternatives, Inc., San Diego County Office of Education, and Access, Inc. Approved by the California Department of Social Services as a three-year pilot project, the Academy is a unique model for serving the whole child via trauma-informed care. While the Academy does not provide legal permanency for foster youth, it does provide a stable, long-term placement with strong linkages to transitional housing and post-emancipation services. The Academy, akin to a resource family placement, also offers a comprehensive support system for the youth, including an individualized education, independent living skills, work readiness training, therapeutic services, extra-curricular and enrichment activities, family connections and relational permanency.
