Alpine Academy Therapeutic Schools Logo alpineacademy.org
At first glance, it is clear that Alpine Academy is different. Two campuses, just three miles apart - one campus for male teenagers and another one for females - are located in a rural farming community nestled at the base of a spectacular mountain range that is just 30 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport. 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, upscale homes in a ranch-type setting. Research shows that children learn best in a family-like environment, and that is what Alpine Academy provides. They eat meals together in the dining room, work together on daily household chores, and are expected to participate in group activities, much as they would at home in everyday life. The campus includes a fully accredited school with dual-endorsed teachers at the front of every classroom. Therapy, with Master’s level clinicians, is built into the school day. Alpine Academy is a nationally certified Teaching-Family Model treatment program. Through its strength-based, trauma-informed, individualized approach, students are taught healthy behaviors in a setting that replicates family, school, and community life.
