Uinta Academy is a therapeutically intensive residential treatment/academic program serving girls ages 13-17 and young adult women ages 18-21. Our comprehensive services include psychiatric care, individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, recreational therapy, equine assisted psychotherapy, and an integrated transition program. Uinta Academy uses a cognitive-behavioral clinical approach in concert with an extremely effective milieu that focuses on building strengths, developing self-esteem, and teaching social, academic, and executive functioning skills. Treatment and support take place in a nurturing, positive, and family-style environment. Every girl participates in daily physical fitness activities, Yoga, weekly recreational activities, meal planning and cooking, school clubs, and monthly explorations activities which include trips and cultural arts outings. Each girl gets her own horse for which she is responsible and participates in weekly equine-assisted therapy, riding, and Parelli natural horsemanship. Uinta’s Cultural Arts Program enhances the girls’ lives and provides a medium for self-awareness and artistic creativity. All students participate in educational and recreational activities such as sports, hiking, horseback riding, skiing, the cultural arts, service projects, and gardening. Uinta’s academic program is an accredited, year-round educational experience, where each girl has an individualized educational program tailored to meet her needs. Specialized education programs can be provided, such as university level study and vocational training.
