Motivation

Our Philosophy

We believe that the healing process needs to be in place for learning to occur. That is why we care for our students with unconditional positive regard, enabling a trust to develop. As our students form relationships with positive adults in a safe and nurturing environment, their walls begin to fall down, and their ability to learn with confidence begins to emerge. At Coulee Connections, we strive to be that healing presence that offers the foundation to build a healthy lifestyle.

Our Beliefs
  • Children will grow emotionally, behaviorally and academically when the underlying causes of their difficulties are addressed therapeutically.

  • Giving unconditional positive regard in a structured, safe environment allows children to develop healthy, trusting relationships with others.

  • Providing individualized therapeutic, academic and vocational instruction will develop academic confidence and instill the desire for lifelong learning.​
