Moonridge Academy is a premier CERTS Program in beautiful Southern Utah. As a Residential Treatment Center, Moonridge Academy is small on purpose with just 16 beds. It is specifically designed for younger students ages 11-14. The size of the program helps students learn to develop good social skills and peer relationships. We accept female students and transmale students (students who identify as male, but are biologically female). We respect a student's preferred use of pronouns and choice of name. Younger students need a younger environment, without the influence of older students' more sophisticated or advanced issues. Moonridge Academy takes a young approach to therapy and intervention. Moonridge Academy is a DBT based program. Clinical modalities meet a student where they are at and include CBT, EMDR, Play Therapy, Equine Therapy and Adventure Therapy. Students participate in weekly Adventure Therapy activities each Wednesday and monthly 3-day adventure trips. Students also receive weekly horseback riding lessons. Moonridge Academy is located in a large farm style home. Students share bedrooms and bathrooms. To allow for privacy, students use bathrooms and change clothing privately. The academic program is direct teacher to student instruction in a traditional classroom setting for grades 6-9. Classes are small. Individualized teaching methods are used to support students' different learning abilities. IEP and 504 plans are supported. Contact Anamarie Rodabough at 435-383-3530 or anamarie@moonridgeacademy.com for referrals or inquiries.
