Tooele County, UT - Alpine Academy is pleased to announce it has welcomed its first male students to the state-of-the-art Lakeview campus. The Lakeview campus is Alpine Academy’s second campus, located just three miles south of its current Mountain View campus and will focus its efforts on providing academic, therapeutic and family services to biological males ages 12-18. Since 2003, the Mountain View campus has provided these services to biological females in the same age range.
The new students are settling into the new Cedar Creek family-style home, have started attending classes and meeting with their therapist, and have enjoyed exploring some of the many recreational opportunities offered at Alpine Academy.
They are being guided through the acclimation process with the help of Alpine’s experienced family teachers, Levi and Amanda Neely. The Neelys are seasoned employees with extensive experience with the Teaching Family Model.
In a statement on the arrival of the new students, the Neelys remarked:
"The students have brought this beautiful home to life. Their desire for self-improvement and academic success has set the tone for the home and campus in general. We are excited to continue this journey together. Our goal is to focus on the strengths and talents of each individual, guide them through the healing process and return them to their families with the skills to better deal with real-life situations.”
The Alpine leadership team is also excited to have Mike Slade join the therapeutic team. He is excited to be working with students at the Lakeview campus. Mike is EMDR and TF-CBT trained has had extensive experience working alongside the Teaching Family Model with the male population for our parent company, Utah Youth Village.
