Whom Do We Serve?

horticultureThe typical student admitted to Clarinda Academy is a juvenile offender who does not have deep-seated psychopathology, but has learned negative behavior patterns that victimize others. Students typically show a low degree of empathy for others, have poor means-ends reasoning, are impulsive, have problems with anger control and aggression, are irresponsible, deny and/or justify negative behaviors (i.e., consider themselves victims when confronted), pride themselves on antisocial values and behaviors, lack self-discipline, and are counteractive and non-compliant with authority.
