Compass Rose Academy accepted as NATSAP Associate Program Member

School earns recognition from the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs

Compass Rose Academy is the newest member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP), a distinguished recognition that showcases the school’s dedication and professionalism in serving struggling young people and their families.

NATSAP recognizes schools and programs that serve children, teens and families in crisis while maintaining outstanding levels of professionalism. All NATSAP schools must be licensed by a state agency that oversees the program’s therapeutic and behavioral health care services, offer therapeutic services with oversight from a qualified clinician, and aspire to the NATSAP Ethical Principles and Principles of Good Practice.

As a member organization, Compass Rose will be able to participate in NATSAP’s national and regional conferences, learning programs and networks. In addition, it will receive continuing education opportunities for staff, government representation and funding and scholarship opportunities.

“We are excited to join such an outstanding organization that successfully supports and champions great programs throughout the country who serve very deserving teens and their families at the highest clinical and therapeutic level,” said Dee Gibson, CEO of White’s Residential & Family Services and Compass Rose Academy.
