therapeutic schoolsI work with hundreds of schools and programs.  They pay for this service to help narrow potential applicants to those who might be a good fit for their program based on the needs of the child and the family budget.

Best Choice Works with These Schools and Hundreds More . . . Without Cost or Obligation to You. We’ll Help You Connect with the Best School or Program to Fit Your Child’s Needs and Within Your Budget, Giving You as Much or as Little Assistance as You Require.

We’re an independent service and a screener for hundreds of therapeutic schools.  We spend a great deal of our time on the road, visiting and evaluating the schools and programs. After conducting such visits and from the ongoing reports from parents, we have a good understanding of the strengths, options, and staff expertise of them all.

What works for one adolescent may not be appropriate for another. Each student and their family’s situation is different. Teaching styles, religious affiliation, specialized services, and the role of the arts or athletics are elements that define each school. Getting it right can make the difference between a mediocre experience and a tremendously fulfilling one.

We charge the schools for our services, not you.  Our assistance never affects the tuition rate or fees you will pay at any of these schools.  We work with hundreds of schools and can help you find the most suitable solution based on your income and your child’s needs.

Do you know what factors should be considered when selecting a therapeutic boarding school for your troubled teen? And how do you know if it is right for your child and family?

Without good help, many kids are bounced from program to program until the parents find one that works for them.  Needless to say, that causes a huge financial loss and much frustration. So, learn from our first-hand experience and from how other parents have evaluated them.  We’ll help you find the right school or program the first time, and never pressure you to choose any particular program.

WHAT IS BEST CHOICE ADMISSIONS SERVICES LLC?

Best Choice Admissions Services LLC (“BCAS”) and its representatives are not placement agents.  We just provide helpful information.  Options and opinions expressed by BCAS are should not be considered as professional referrals nor expert recommendations of a medical, behavioral health, or educational professional. BCAS is not licensed or bonded to provide medical, psychological, or educational advice or recommendations, so we don’t. We simply offer a list of helpful options. Parents and guardians should always consider seeking advice from a licensed professional before making any decision in relation to their placement of any child in a residential program.

BCAS assists the communications of the admissions departments of a number of schools, from which it also receives compensation (a flat fee per enrollment) for its work. BC is indemnified by each organization and has no control over the actions of such organizations or their staff. BC is rarely on-campus of each program, so we do not know everything about what goes on, nor should we be held responsible for such information. We visit each campus periodically and get anecdotal feedback about each program from parents, which aids us in providing helpful options to individuals as they search for the program of their own best choice.

By Federal law, BCAS is required to mention that the programs we select to represent are selected solely based upon their desire for our assistance, and they pay us a flat fee based on each student we help guide to them.  The fee is not based on the services that are rendered nor fees paid by the parent or guardian. We receive no kickbacks for the number of services the student requires, nor their length of stay in the school or program. Of the schools and programs we might mention as options, we do so without regard to their ability to pay us a higher amount than do other schools or programs. For some low-income individuals, we may mention schools that pay us nothing.

Should BCAS learn that a school has done anything inappropriate with students, such that they are found guilty in a court of law, we will immediately stop mentioning that school as an option and remove it from our directories. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) cautions that before you enroll a youngster in a private residential treatment program or any institution or service, be sure to check it out yourself: ask questions; ask for proof or support for claims about staff credentials, program licensing or accreditation, and endorsements; do a site visit, and get all policies and promises in writing.

Five Important Points:

(1) HOW DO WE SELECT PROGRAMS TO REPRESENT?
ANSWER: We connect with an ever-widening range of programs and schools that we select based on the breadth of their program, longevity, location, reviews, facility, and the expertise of their personnel.  Though we do not know everything that transpires at the programs and schools we might mention, those that fail to keep students safe or maintain appropriate level of service are removed from our list.  Even so, parents must understand that we have no control over the program or school and do not know everything that is going on there.

(2) HOW ARE WE REMUNERATED FOR OUR SERVICES?
ANSWER: Schools and institutions seek our services to help them communicate to the public. We are not placement agents and are never paid other kickbacks nor are paid according to the level of the services rendered by the institution to the individual.

(3) HOW DO WE CHOOSE WHICH INSTITUTIONS TO OFFER AS OPTIONS?
ANSWER: We are not licensed, educational consultants, nor are we psychologists. We never “refer” an individual to any specific program as a professional would. Instead, we offer lists schools that might be a good match for the parent and child from among the organizations that have asked for our assistance.  We recommend that the parent seek licensed medical, psychological, or educational help in making a final determination of which school or program to select.

(4) WHAT KIND OF AGREEMENT DOES BEST CHOICE HAVE WITH THESE SCHOOLS AND PROGRAMS?
ANSWER: We connect with what we think are the best programs and schools (based on our experience of working in such programs and schools in the past) and ask them if they would allow us to include them in our list of options.  Others contact us for assistance.  We make no promises as to the number of students we will direct to their organization, nor do we allow any remuneration or kickbacks outside of our flat fee.

(5) WHAT WOULD CAUSE BCAS TO NOT REPRESENT A PROGRAM, OR TO HELP ANY INDIVIDUAL), WHO CONTACTS US.
ANSWER: We help any individual, regardless of their ethnicity or beliefs.  The only individuals who may not be helped by us are those who have no funds to pay any organization we represent, or if any or all of those organizations we represent decline to accept the child, at their own discretion. As for programs and schools, we will work with them if they have a good reputation. However, we do not know everything that goes on at the organization, nor have any control over that, so each school or institution indemnifies us from liability.

“NO WARRANTY” LEGAL NOTICE: BCAS does not guarantee recovery or even positive outcomes for any particular individual who attends any program or school that we might offer as an option. We also cannot guarantee that the school or institution will provide a safe and nondiscriminatory environment.  For the student, recovery and future avoidance of troubling behavior, emotions, or actions and whatever effects that may have on their life, their future, their career, their mental or physical health, or their friends and relatives are entirely dependent on that individual student and how they accept and apply the principles they are taught by the program, school or its staff or therapists.  We have no control over the procedures or actions of the schools and institutions that we may mention, nor do we have any financial position or leadership role in them.
