All Kinds of News for July 10, 2019
From May 27th - May 31st Greenbrier Academy’s academic staff immersed themselves in curriculum planning and in-service. Located in Pence Springs, WV, the academic staff at Greenbrier was thrilled to spend a week increasing student success while modeling a school-wide dedication to service; a core part of this therapeutic boarding school for girl’s program culture.
As a result, our Clinical Team organized Family Unit Bonding Week to fill Greenbrier’s students' schedules with a week of adventure activities, as well as ways to connect on a deeper level with one another. Through decades of serving families and their high school aged daughters, Greenbrier acknowledges the importance of quality bonding time to strengthen a virtuous community culture. Students struggling with a lost sense of self were supported to develop a positive self perception as they cultivated a sense of belonging within a community of supportive peers and mentors.
To encourage healthy identity development and a virtuous student culture, Greenbrier’s dedicated clinical team arranged a week of:
- treetop adventures with zip lining,
- white water rafting,
- volunteering at a local strawberry farm and animal rescue,
- hiking, and
- giving back to the community on campus.
Service and connection brings meaning to one's life. Greenbrier staff were thrilled to watch students engage in serving the community and connecting with one another in meaningful ways. Additionally, the adventure therapy activities were a spectacular treat for all to enjoy the West Virginia summer landscape.
