In 2012, Summit Traverse joined the continuum of care at Summit Achievement Wilderness Therapy. Summit Traverse is an individualized, flexible length (minimum of two months) coed therapeutic boarding environment for teens who need more time to practice the skills they learned in treatment, while increasing contact with their family and reintegrating into a traditional school schedule.
This is done by providing the Traverse students an academic center with classes five days a week, additionally having individual therapy, family therapy and strong milieu therapy. Much of the program is focused on preparing and assessing the readiness of a student for a traditional academic environment either at home or at a traditional boarding school. Weekend activities are similar to a traditional school setting (though with a much higher staff to student ratio) including going to the climbing gym, skiing, movies, baseball games.
The history of Summit Traverse students transitioning to traditional boarding school environments is noteworthy. Here are a few examples of schools students have enrolled in following their treatment experience: Tilton School (NH), Kents Hill School (ME), Hyde School (ME), Rock Point School (VT), White Mountain School (VT), Oliverian School (NH), Brewster Academy (NH), Stoneleigh-Burnham School (MA/all girls), Marvelwood School (CT), Vermont Academy (VT), Hebron Academy (ME) and Gould Academy (ME).
