Montana Academy is a therapeutic boarding school, emphasizes both treatment and education.
We endeavor to provide sophisticated clinical expertise in a simple environment.
On a remote Montana ranch, the school combines an emotional growth curriculum designed for psychologically troubled youth with a dual academic program grounded in practical tasks to suit students disenchanted with and disengaged from conventional classrooms.
Experienced clinicians, trained teachers and seasoned outdoorsmen integrate treatment and learning in the classroom, in the kitchen, on the ranch, on the river and around mountain campfires.
Montana Academy aims to teach students whose emotional problems have disrupted learning in both academic content areas and in learning process.
Many troubled students have not yet learned how to learn and flounder in conventional crowded classrooms as a result.
Students at various grade levels and with differing skills work together on core subjects, aided by certified teachers skilled in teaching students of varying abilities and motivations. Students receive personal attention afforded by smaller class sizes.
