“Empowering learning in a safe, supportive and conducive environment”
Bradfield Center offers a fully accredited school, accredited by AdvancEd/SACS and Georgia Accreditation Commission.
Ault Academy vision and purpose is to provide high expectations for all learners in a safe, secure and supportive learning environment. A strong emphasis is placed on a quality curriculum that emphasizes problem-solving, critical thinking, responsibility, work ethic, and citizenship to enable each student to thrive and survive in society.
The mission of the Troup County School System is to educate all students in a challenging and safe learning environment, so they will become productive citizens in a diverse and changing world.
Ault Academy faculty believe that:
- All students can learn and succeed best when they have appropriate and challenging opportunities for success and are actively engaged in the learning process.
- Instructional practices include learning activities that take into account differences in learning styles, because students learn in different ways.
- Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs and should be provided with developmentally appropriate learning activities.
- Setting high expectations increase individual student performance.
- All students can learn competent technology skills appropriate for their developmental level.
- Teachers, Twin Cedars’ staff, Troup County School system liasons, parents, custody holders, and students themselves should participate in the education process.
- Exceptional students will be provided special services and resources.
- Students have a need to be taught the basic principles of conduct and citizenship in American society.
- Problem solving is an important aspect of a child’s education.
Ault Academy, our on-campus school, is accredited by the Advance Ed. (SACS), Georgia Accreditation Commission and approved by the Georgia Department of Education. Twin Cedars Youth and Family Services Inc., Bradfield Center, recognizes that 100% of the students who are admitted to our program are a unique population of individuals with specific psychotherapeutic, psychoeducational, and academic needs. A significant number of students enter our program with records indicating they are below grade level. In the Ault Academy setting, students are evaluated upon admission with the Wide Range Achievement test. The teachers utilize test information to determine current level of ability and develop lesson plans in accordance with expectations for each student’s grade level. Supplemental resources are used to help meet each student’s needs when his ability level is below (or above) grade level. Georgia Performance Standards serve as a guide for all teachers’ lesson plans. These standards are downloaded from the website and used by teachers in writing objectives for daily lesson plans.
