Project Six

STEM^3 Academy is the only STEM high school in the country to offer a therapeutic residential program. The Help Group’s Project Six Residential Program is located in the San Fernando Valley within Los Angeles County. Residents reside in a dorm-like setting, complete with an art and music studio, computer lab, fitness center, indoor basketball court and a large gymnasium.

Project Six is an agency of The Help Group. Founded in 1975, The Help Group is a nonprofit agency serving children with special needs related to autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, ADHD, developmental delays, abuse, trauma and emotional challenges.

Project Six residents experience a nurturing environment where positive and constructive feedback is integrated into a structured daily schedule. The program encourages respect, personal and interpersonal development and fosters a sense of community and responsibility. Supported by a highly skilled, compassionate and caring clinical and behavioral staff, residents are encouraged to address their individual needs in a proactive and productive manner. Each resident has a personal advisor for additional guidance and support.

Meals are cooked fresh daily and served family style. Our chef and agency dietitian ensure that food choices are healthy and varied. Specialized diets such as gluten free, kosher, or vegetarian options are available. Residents assist in meal preparation as part of their daily living skills program.

On-going communication between STEM^3 Academy, classroom teachers and the residential staff, as well as the availability of study skill instruction, tutoring and academic enrichment, ensure a full integration of the educational program into the residential setting.
