Education, recreation, and therapy intersect to provide comprehensive healing experiences for adolescents. As a leading provider in teen mental health, we specialize in crafting transformative treatment programs that stand out for their innovation and effectiveness. 

We have just one focus–deliver consistent excellence within our specialties. Every teenager is unique. In a treatment setting, what works for one teen may not work for another.

True Transition in a Boarding School

Mountain Springs Preparatory Academy is a boarding school that specializes in transition, step-down and practice. Specifically designed to help students who are stepping down from a higher level of care (i.e. residential treatment, therapeutic boarding school or wilderness program) to prepare for their next step in life. Mountain Springs utilizes a solution-focused model that allows students the opportunity to make choices, within a safe environment and assess how much the students have internalized the skills they have learned in their prior treatment.
