Capacity to Thrive

Open Sky is founded in the tradition of humanism, which holds the belief that all humans are basically good and, with the right supports, will gravitate toward achieving their fullest potential. We combine this humanistic tradition with our comprehensive clinical approach and wellness practices to support our students, families, and staff in accessing their capacity to thrive.

Informed by core concepts such as Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and Glasser’s choice theory, Open Sky supports students and families as they reflect on how they have tried to meet their basic needs in the past and how they can make healthier, more adaptive decisions moving forward. When our students and families identify their core values and meet their needs with intention, they begin to live and behave in ways that are more congruent with who they want to be.
