What is Turning Point Educational Center?

Turning Point Educational Center provides mentoring, support, education, and related services for at-risk high school students. Let's face it, the teenage years can be rough. Life is not known for being fair. Students attend Turning Point Educational Center for a variety of reasons. Maybe they have family troubles at home, fell behind on credits at school, are challenged by anxiety or depression, became pregnant unexpectedly, experienced disciplinary issues, struggled with sickness, or other reasons. Turning Point welcomes them and gives them a second chance. Whatever their reason for attending this school, all students need the opportunity to keep hope alive in their hearts and minds.
