Helping Youth Find a Path to Independence
Ellipsis is a privately-run youth residential facility located within the Johnston Community School District boundaries.
Ellipsis serves more than 750 kids and their families with residential care and treatment, counseling and therapy, behavioral health intervention services, care coordination and family support. In doing so, Ellipsis is helping kids and families overcome turbulent pasts to build successful, rewarding futures.
All of the programs on the Ellipsis campus have the end goal of providing troubled youth and their families a path to independence. As part of their continuum of care, Ellipsis leaders work closely with the Johnston Community School District to provide accredited education services to their residential youth. The educators who work on the Ellipsis campus are employed by the Johnston Community School District, are fully certified, and hold their teaching license under the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners.
