A Unique Therapeutic Boarding School

Turning Winds Academic Institute is a therapeutic boarding school in Montana that provides help for troubled teens and their families with an exceptional degree of success. Here, you’ll find the benefits of a wilderness program, a therapeutic boarding school, and a residential treatment center (RTC), all in one safe, beautiful, and peaceful location. Our clinical, educational, and operations staff are among the best in the country, and share a passion for helping young people in crisis.

Our nearly 1:1 staff-to-student ratio means that your child will not fall through the cracks. He or she will be constantly engaged in academic, therapeutic, physical and social activities which build strength of mind, body, and character. We create a powerful, meaningful experience for each child, most of whom come to us with issues including low self-worth, behavioral problems, poor academic performance, ADD/ADHD, depression, addictions, spectrum disorders and attachment disorders. The end result is a young adult with purpose, integrity, and optimism for the future – one that many parents describe as “transformed.”
