What sets us apart

BHA adheres to a code of ethics and student progress that is built from honesty, consistency, communication and experience. We provide educational expertise with individual attention to all of our student’s needs. Our goal is to provide a successful learning and working environment for children.

We strive to serve children academically and socially while providing the best educational and career and employment opportunities that meet their needs.

Traditional and Non-Traditional students need an opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, caring environment with trained professionals who have the children’s best interests at heart. Our staff offers opportunities for success that students may not have in their current placements.

We work diligently with children who have a prognosis for failure and show them how to succeed. Our broad array of services combines therapy, social skills development, consistent reinforcement, certified instruction, and career and employment opportunities.

We are educational professionals who care about our students and believe in the programs we offer. We are an affordable alternative education system for the districts we serve. We are licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and utilize curriculum aligned with state standards. We challenge those who say children are never  oing to be successful regardless of the educational placement and environment.

Getting those students the help they need is our focus. Providing them the tools and the opportunity to reach their potential is our charge.
