Avanti Center for Girls offers a continuum of shelter, evaluation and residential treatment services for adolescent girls, ages 13-18, experiencing mental health crises. The Willows is the on-site school located in Avanti. Education at The Willows is highly individualized and coordinated with the student's home district, allowing as little disruption in school progress as possible. As students progress in treatment, there are off-site alternatives to assist with re-integration into a mainstream school setting. Decisions regarding school setting are made in collaboration with the resident and their parents, Willow's staff and Avanti's treatment team.
