Barboursville School

Barboursville School is a residential treatment facility for adolescents with serious emotional disturbance. Individualized treatment and education services are provided in a highly supervised and structured environment to both males and females between the ages of 12 and 18 years old.

The school is a secure 24-hour residential treatment facility providing psychiatric and behavioral health services for adolescents who have demonstrated harm to self or others. Students who have a severe clinical disorder with major deficits in family, social, educational and vocational adjustments, which cannot be served in less restrictive environments, can be placed at Barboursville School. Barboursville is now able to admit adolescents under a Chapter 49 court order, in addition to adolescents who have a Chapter 27 final commitment.

Barboursville School offers full-day, extended-year education services staffed by a principal, school counselor and fully certified teachers, employed by the West Virginia Department of Education.
This program utilizes a behavioral management system to incorporate a level system based on points earned throughout the day. Each level affords the student increased privileges and individual responsibilities. Therapies include

  • Individual Therapy
  • Groups Sessions
  • Behavior Management
  • Therapeutic recreation
  • Experimental Learning Programs
