We provide an individualized and comprehensive education in a non-traditional therapeutic boarding school setting. Our students are bright, troubled adolescents with a history of self-defeating or self-destructive choices. Our peer-based approach leads students to high levels of achievement and inspires them to develop in ways that promote self-respect, maturity, and respect for others.
