Chrysalis is a therapeutic boarding school, residential treatment center, and transitional living program only for girls located in stunning northwest Montana. By removing distractions and giving girls ages 13-18 room to heal, we help each student find her inner strengths and discover the best way to share those strengths with others through unique life-affirming adventures.

The Chrysalis therapeutic boarding school provides students with a personalized approach to teacher-led academics while they’re receiving therapy. Our certified teachers instruct small classes through focused academics, and teens earn credit year-round, finding or rekindling a love of learning that will serve them throughout their lives.

We help teen girls with mental health challenges including:
• ADHD
• Alcohol Use
• Anxiety
• Anger
• Behavioral Issues
• Depression
• Trauma
• Technology Addiction
• Self-harming
• Stress
• Suicidal Ideation
• Coping Skills
• Other Mental Health Issues
