School Notes

  • We are designed for average to above average girls who struggle with issues of depression, anxiety, ADHD, self- esteem, substance abuse, grief, loss and adoption issues, but who share a desire to move forward in their lives.
  • Our family and support programs offer opportunities for families to develop strategies to reconnect and strengthen their relationships.
  • Students are actively engaged in their education process with experiential learning opportunities that go beyond the classroom. Our attentive faculty and small staff to student ratio (1:4) contribute to strong connections with students, offering constructive habits for life-long learning.
  • Art plays a crucial role in self expression and the therapeutic process. We offer a wide variety of art classes to suit many interests including ceramics & pottery, jewelry making, piano lessons, painting and 3-D sculpture.
  • Unique to Greenbrier, our Village Retreat is an intense therapeutic experience.
  • The School of Horsemanship is an optional program, offering private and semi-private lessons.
  • Drumming accelerates physical healing, and produces feelings of wellbeing, a release of emotional trauma and a reintegration of self. Every day our community gets together to drum healing rhythms.
  • We also have a wide spectrum of outdoor and indoor activities and cultural events, as well as volunteer work in the local community and a foster/rescue program for cats and dogs. Whether its volunteering locally with Habitat for Humanity or traveling to Nicaragua we provide many opportunities for our girls to serve the needs of others.
