Welcome to Turning Winds Academic Institute (TWAI), a therapeutic boarding school for struggling teenagers. It has been said that it takes a village to raise a child. We are proud that our boarding school is a contributing part of that village. Over the years we have worked with thousands of parents in helping their troubled teens embrace positive change. We have developed a proven comprehensive program shown to be effective in helping teens overcome previous negative and destructive behaviors and to embrace healthy new lifestyles.Through the use of our Integrated Therapeutic Curriculum (ITC) and our character education focus we are able to help each teen we work with to be continuously learning and acquiring important “life skills;” skills that once learned, and retained, will significantly increase the likelihood of success after the completion of our “life changing” program.
TWAI is designed to successfully work with families in many different geographic locations. Over the past decade we have enrolled students from every major continent in the world (Click here for foreign enrollment information).
