Troubled Teen Schools in Pennsylvania
Residential care facilities in Pennsylvania, such as alternative and therapeutic boarding schools for adolescents, are monitored and licensed by the Bureau of Family Health/Division of Child & Adult Health Services, specifically the Adolescent Health Program.
Private schools in Pennsylvania do not need to be accredited, but if a school chooses to do so, it may be accredited rather than licensed. Licensing requirements cover health, safety, staff and curriculum minimal standards . Licensed schools must employ certified teachers while non-licensed schools are not required to. Private schools must be taught in English and immunization records for all students are required . All school employees must be screened by the Department of Public Welfare for criminal history and basic background checks. Anyone not receiving a clearance from the department is not eligible for hire.
