About Therapeutic Boarding Schools in Texas
Troubled Teen Schools in Texas
Residential facilities that house children are regulated by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS). The department strives to protect all children in alternative and therapeutic boarding schools via strict standards, investigations and regulations.
Private schools in Texas are under no requirements for registration or licensing, and accreditation is optional. If the private school is not accredited, teacher certification is not required. Accredited private schools must employ teachers that meet the minimum state standards, but there are no professional developments required. Immunization records are required for all private schools. Also, private school employees must undergo a criminal background check.
