Mount Bachelor Academy, a co-educational boarding school for teens founded in 1988, provides a well-rounded academic and therapeutic curriculum designed for teens with behavioral, emotional, motivational problems or special learning needs. We integrate intellectual, social, and physical development while facilitating students on their way to emotional maturity. Our methods emphasize acquisition of self-awareness, self-esteem, development of problem-solving and decision-making skills through experiential learning. Students deal with situational living, as well as personal issues in communication skills groups two to three times weekly. Students learn to address issues that have prevented them from achieving academic and personal success in a highly structured, nurturing, healthy peer environment. The Academy's highly skilled teaching faculty and staff members have proven records in working with children who may have displayed behavior that is symptomatic of low self-esteem and self-concept.
