Post Graduate Home Support

Post Graduate Home Support is designed to provide parents of River View Christian Academy students with continuing assistance in the transition of their student back home.

“Continuing assistance in the transition of your student back home.”

The return home of your child who has lived under a very structured program is a critical time. Post Graduate Home Support was developed in order to make this transition as effective as possible. Therefore, it is critical that parents participate. You will look back and be amazed at the difference if you are 100% committed to Post Graduate Home Support. However, if you withdraw your child from RVCA too early, your child will not qualify for Post Graduate Home Support.

At-home level supervision is an important aspect of Post Graduate Home Support. Every two weeks a progress report is sent to River View Christian Academy for evaluation and discussion with the parents.

“Post Graduate Support provides support, accountability, and guidance.”

It is the responsibility of the parents to carefully monitor the student’s activities, friends, and whereabouts at all times. The Post Graduate Home Support Director will provide support, accountability, and guidance to the Post Graduate Home Support students and their families through regular contact and bi-weekly phone calls.

There are various forms and checklists that will be completed by the parents and the student while the student approaches the completion of the on-campus portion of the program and while he/she progresses through Post Graduate Home Support. These forms help the student and parents plan and prepare for the student’s return home, and will also help the student adjust back to the home environment once he/she does return home. Post Graduate Home Support lasts 8 months. The cost of Post Graduate Home Support is included in the cost of the program.

Through Post Graduate Home Support, RVCA will provide the following:

  • The parents have weekly contact with the Post Graduate Home Support director for the first three months.
  • Parents and students will also be able to call the Post Graduate Home Support director at any time during office hours.
  • The Post Graduate Home Support director will review the evaluation sheets filled out by the parents.
  • The parents will have discussions with the Post Graduate Home Support director concerning the progress and status of the student.
  • The Post Graduate Home Support director will help integrate the students into youth groups and church activities (if the parents approve and the student desires a Christian environment).
  • The Post Graduate Home Support director will notify the students and parents of upcoming events in which the student can participate.
