Alpine Academy Logo alpineacademy.org
Alpine Academy is a Residential Treatment Program that has the look and feel of a therapeutic boarding school. It includes two separate 30+ acre campuses – one for adolescent males and one for adolescent females. Alpine Academy is a nationally certified Teaching-Family Model treatment program. The American Psychological Association notes that the Teaching-Family Model is empirically tested and evidence based for improving behaviors. Treatment through the Teaching-Family Model is strength based, trauma-informed and individualized. Alpine Academy uses it as the framework to insure consistency and collaboration in the residential, academic, and clinical aspects of treatment. “It is ingrained in everything we do.”
