Spring Ridge Academy is a private, therapeutic boarding school for girls, serving students ages
13 -17 in grades 9-12. Spring Ridge combines an empowering emotional growth program
with a sophisticated therapeutic approach and a rigorous college prep curriculum. Not only
are students immersed in an environment dedicated to fostering maturity and confidence,
the entire family is included in the process, creating an atmosphere of change, collaboration
and hope. The catalyst for creating this change is a powerful, affirmative and nurturing
program that creates confidence and competence in core areas; emotional, physical, academic,
community, and family.

SRA students are bright, creative and unique individuals who are struggling to manage their
lives. Often these young women are involved in a variety of destructive behaviors, and are in
danger of sabotaging their relationships and academic careers. The SRA student is capable
and talented but lacks the self-esteem and self-discipline necessary to succeed. Many of the
young women who come to SRA may be struggling with one or more of the following: PTSD,
Anxiety, Depression, ADD/ADHD, Family Conflict, Defiance, Entitlement, Isolation, Grief
and Loss, Negative Peer Group, Computer/Technology Abuse, Academic Underachievement,
Substance Abuse, Attachment/Adoption Issues, Learning/Social Difficulties.

The Therapeutic approach at SRA utilizes a combination of family systems and developmental
models to create a comprehensive scope of treatment where students confront and master
the self-limiting beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors separating them from success. Therapeutic
services include weekly individual, daily group, bi-weekly family, psychiatric services and
medication management, issue specific groups, aftercare planning and support, creative and
supportive interventions. Students are engaged in a structured but normalized academic
setting that includes AP courses, remediation, foreign language study and extensive
coursework in the fine arts. Students have the opportunity to participate in competitive
athletics, debate and other extra-curricular activities.
