Independent Living Skills
A program designed at The Methodist Children’s Home and taught in three phases (elementary, junior high, and high school) enables children to learn skills throughout their stay at The Children’s Home that are necessary for success when they reach independence. Preparation for Independent living skills include financial skills, cooking, car care, life interest, hobbies, and other skills and talents needed in life.
Because of the generosity of those interested in the higher education of our youth, a special fund exists to provide college and vocational assistance to youth continuing in these endeavors. In the current school year, we have fourteen young people in college and technical schools.
Price Educational Center
Our On-Campus Educational Services include the Price Educational Center, with Elementary E.B.D. (Emotional Behavior Disorder) Classrooms. This enables us to provide the small class size and individual attention our students need to succeed. We also offer on-campus Tutorial Services to our residents.
The Methodist Children’s Home desires that staff grow personally and professionally as a benefit of their employment with us. One way we build our employees is to increase their competency and confidence. Additionally, by offering the ability to progress within the agency and within a particular position, we allow employees to develop a career. Our excellent staff is available for both internal and external training. Our facilities are much sought after as a place for outside agencies to hold their training. Statewide conferences held on our campus are a benefit to many. We are pleased to be a “go-to” place for training in Georgia.
