OVERVIEW

A THERAPEUTIC SCHOOL

Montana Academy is a therapeutic boarding school for troubled teenagers.  At its founding in 1997 it was unique in the nation.  For it combined well-trained clinicians, an effective therapeutic program and a challenging prep school--all situated on a remote Montana ranch.  Soon the Academy fulfilled its promise to become a remarkable combination of clinical sophistication, staged incentives and ambitious academics.

CLINICAL HELP

A DUAL APPROACH
The Academy’s clinical sophistication begins with a dual diagnostic and treatment focus.  It has been rare that one descriptive “disorder” could make full sense of a student’s many problems.  Medications usually have already failed to remedy our in-coming students’ broadly-based disarray at school, at home, and socially, among age peers.

THE PROGRAM

A PUSH FOR MATURITY
The MA program takes students through a carefully-ordered sequence of assigned tasks (e.g., to write a biography of a parent), psychology seminars (e.g., lectures and discussions about emotional regulation) and developmental personal achievements (e.g., a sustained consideration for others).

ACADEMICS

SCHOLASTIC MATURITY
Pressed, years ago, to define MA’s primary scholastic goal, our faculty pushed past mere content mastery, and chose instead: scholastic maturity, i.e., the grown-up, deft, balanced approach to learning and to schools and teachers, which makes for academic success in any school.
