The Clinical Program is a unique center-based program for students ages 8 through 21 who meet a variety of mental health and educational criteria. The students who attend the Clinical Program exhibit severe behavior problems and have not been educationally successful in a public school setting. In addition, many students have either returned from or are at risk of needing out-of-county placements. The purpose of the Clinical Program is to provide students with a safe and caring educational program within their local community as opposed to placement at an approved private school outside of the community.
The IU 13 Community School Program serves adolescents with emotional difficulties who struggled in a traditional school setting. This program operates on behalf of the 22 public school districts in Lancaster and Lebanon counties.

It offers a lower student-to-staff ratio and specialized instruction to meet the individual student’s needs.
The IU 13 Emotional Support Program serves children who demonstrate learning or behavioral problems primarily due to emotional reasons. The goal of the program is to help each child develop the academic, emotional and social skills necessary to function productively. The staff provides training, consultation and technical assistance specifically in the area of behavior. This often includes assessment and evidence-based interventions.
