Valley View School is a small, private therapeutic boarding school serving boys in grades 6-12. Our campus is situated on 215 acres of forests and rolling hills in the heart of New England just 90 miles outside of Boston.

We are a therapeutic community fostering the growth of our students through a well-developed, integrative program where supportive interventions and high expectations are balanced to create a structured and supportive learning environment. It is where our students are taught to learn self control and anger management, to create and cultivate relationships with peers and adults, to develop compassion, empathy and respect for others and to realize their true potential. Our overall program consists of a comprehensive blend of Therapy, Academics, Athletics, Arts and Activities challenging our students emotionally, intellectually and physically.

Valley View students are between the ages of 10-15 upon enrollment and may have a history clinically identified as:
– Anxiety
– ADHD
– Oppositional Defiant Disorder
– Childhood Bipolar
– School Phobias

which may be created by life experiences such as:
– adoption
– divorce
– early attachment issues
– frustration with family, peers and school

Our experienced clinical staff consists of licensed Ph.D. Clinical Psychologists, a Board Certified Child Psychiatrist and Master’s level Clinicians. Our therapeutic approach is based on a student’s individual needs.
