High School & College
Placement Counseling

Second only to the quality of education is the
fit between the teenager and the particular high school or college. Dr. Karr has extensive knowledge and experience with all local high schools and many colleges and universities locally, regionally and nationally. He is in a unique position to evaluate this important issue, make recommendations and evaluate ongoing progress as change occurs.


Residential Treatment Evaluations
It is almost always better for a teenager to remain within the home than be placed in a residential facility. SFIA has numerous programs that ‘mirror’ the best of wilderness and residential settings.

To determine whether or not out-of-home placement is a necessity, a careful and thorough evaluation should be made, including the assessment of other options. The Institute, its programs and affiliates, is an ideal place to obtain this evaluation and the professional advice and recommendations that go with it.
