Alpine Academy Therapeutic Schools Logo alpineacademy.org
At first glance, you'll know Alpine Academy is different. Although Alpine Academy is a private school, it doesn’t look like one. It doesn’t look like a treatment facility either, although it is one. What Alpine Academy looks like is a community of beautiful homes in a ranch-type setting. The students eat meals together in the home's dining room, work together on daily chores, and are expected to participate in group activities, much as they would at home in everyday life. School, with small class sizes averaging 8-10 students, mirrors a typical traditional school setting with direct instruction from dual-endorsed teachers at the front of every classroom. Therapy, with Master’s level clinicians, is built into the school day. The Teaching-Family Model is at the core of everything we do. With this strength-based, trauma-informed, individualized approach, students are taught healthy behaviors in a setting that best replicates family, school, and community life.
