Therapeutic Boarding Schools Alaska
As a top therapeutic boarding school for troubled teenagers from Alaska, Turning Winds provides valued direction to teenagers suffering from mood disorder, sexual abuse, and/or sexual promiscuity related challenges. We deliver the experience of a wilderness therapy program and residential treatment program in one combined facility. Through our therapeutic boarding school, teen boys and girls learn to overcome the mental health conditions, behavioral concerns, and mild to moderate meth abuse/addiction that may be preventing them from living the normal well-adjusted life of a teenager.
Many teen boys and girls in Alaska feel they cannot be "normal" simply because they have too many problems or have done too many bad things. The truth is, teenage boys and girls with mental health disorders can go on to live happy, productive lives if their mental health condition is properly identified, evaluated, and treated. Unfortunately, so many teen boys and girls do not receive the treatment they need and they end up dealing with dilemmas related to drug dependence, anger misconduct, and/or bipolar disorder.

Teenage Boys and Girls who attend our program learn the skills for remediation and overcoming the poor decisions they may have made in the past.

top therapeutic boarding schools
Struggling teen boys and girls in Alaska can benefit from a top therapeutic boarding school that provides both treatment for any present mental health concerns and a full academic program. Turning Winds is an accredited top therapeutic boarding school that is recognized by the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC). Through a co-ed remediation program, troubled teenage boys and girls from Alaska learn how to change their direction in life so they can develop a positive work ethic and pursue a career.
Though some parents are slightly concerned over sending their teen to a co-ed therapeutic boarding school, they quickly learn there are many benefits for their troubled teen in Alaska. Unfortunately, many teen boys and girls lack the skills and understanding that is needed for the respect of the opposite sex. Excluding them from being around people of the opposite sex will only compound the issues they are facing and will make transitioning back into society difficult.
residential therapeutic boarding schools
Co-ed residential therapeutic boarding schools allow developing kids to gain the unique perspectives that both sexes deliver. They learn to not only respect others, but they also form strong social bonds that help them through their remediation treatment so they can be successful in overcoming the challenges related to mood disorder, anger misconduct, and/or meth abuse/addiction; that has held them back in the past.
In our residential therapeutic boarding school, the students are engaged in activity at all times. Our program provides a 5:1 ratio of staff to teenage boys and girls, so no child ever falls through the cracks or is ignored. With this high ratio of staff to young clients, we can assure parents their child will be monitored so that no issues arise that would cause them to become distracted from their ultimate goal of pursuing their education and receiving treatment for any mental health conditions they suffer from.
Turning Winds provides a top co-ed education experience that is not only accredited by the NWAC, but also by the National Independent Private Schools Association. (NIPSA) We take great pride in offering our residents with the skills they need for overcoming their life obstacles and propelling them towards success.
therapeutic boarding schools for teens in Alaska
Turning Winds is a recognized therapeutic boarding school, located in the beautiful wilderness of Montana. Our therapy program is unique because it provides a treatment program with a strong emphasis on education. Our young clients typically learn two years of High School academics in the one year they reside in our therapeutic boarding school. We not only engage their minds and get them excited about learning, we also help them with any issues that may have caused them to experience poor academic performance in the past.
Often, teen boys and girls in Alaska are failing in traditional schools because their underlying mental and emotional needs are not being met. Unfortunately, many teenage boys and girls suffer from undiagnosed learning disabilities and bipolar disorder. We work to identify these issues so the right method of instruction can be put in place. We understand that every child learns differently and we are successful in identifying each teen’s learning strengths so they can see success no matter what level they may be working on.
Not only does Turning Winds deliver a stellar educational opportunity, we also offer a wilderness program that provides troubled teen boys and girls in Alaska limitless outdoor activities that teach them respect, gratitude, humility, and responsibility. These are attributes many teenage boys and girls today simply do not possess. Once teen boys and girls graduate from our program they are ready to face life with new direction and determination.
Our goal for teenage boys and girls in Alaska is to strengthen family bonds so forgiveness and resolution can be found. Bringing families back together is one of the greatest joys we are privileged to experience when teen boys and girls progress through our program.
