PCHAS Education Services

Current Youth and Recent Graduates from Foster Care

Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS) provides Advanced Education and Transitional Living services for youth while being served in foster care on our campus in Itasca, and after graduating from the program.

The Advanced Education Program begins when youth at the Village turn 17 or enroll in the 11th grade. An Advanced Education Specialist helps youth prepare academically, apply for college, embrace the freedom and responsibilities of college life, and adjust to the rigors of college level academics. For more information, PCHAS alumni may call 800.888.1904.

The Transitional Living Program helps youth make a successful transition to independent living, which may also include a full or part time job, vocational training, junior college courses, or a combination of all three. The Transitional Living Program serves former foster care youth ages 18 to 25 and is located on PCHAS Waxahachie campus. For more information, CLICK HERE or call 800.888.1904.
