Why Choose Spring Ridge Academy?

A Supportive and Friendly Setting and a Safe Haven for Girls to Learn

At Spring Ridge Academy we combine a sophisticated therapeutic approach with a well-rounded college prep curriculum and structured community life.

The SRA environment is built on a foundation of learning and connection, allowing us to work effectively with our students and their families. Our unique approach tends to the emotional, relational, spiritual, intellectual, and physical needs of each student.

The Spring Ridge Academy Difference

What makes Spring Ridge Academy different from other Therapeutic Boarding Schools is our unique approach to the therapeutic, academic, social and physical needs of each student and family. Through therapy, education, and a supportive peer culture, we have created a community that fosters connection and growth.

Student Stories

At Spring Ridge Academy we have a focused admissions criteria. The young women that SRA helps are bright, talented and highly creative individuals who are struggling to manage their lives.

Often these are young women involved in a variety of risky and/or addictive behaviors that are sabotaging their relationships and affecting their academic careers. The SRA student is very capable and talented but has lacked the self-esteem and self-discipline needed to be successful.

Here are some of their stories.

Every single one of you deserves a beautiful life and Spring Ridge is your opportunity to create that.

In my time at Spring Ridge, I’ve brought the life back into myself and come to love every part of it. I’ve discovered that life is precious, and I’ve found what makes it meaningful to me. I believe that the most valuable change in me is that I’ve learned to love; I’ve learned to love others, I’ve learned to love life and I’ve learned to love myself.

Who Am I?

Once upon a time, there was a curious little girl. This magical child saw herself as special and loved herself. As she grew older, that confidence and spontaneity disappeared. This magical child no longer felt good enough or worthy. The next few years became The Dark Years.

Growth Through Connection

I arrived at Spring Ridge Academy at 17, very much stuck inside the mind of a younger version of myself. I was lost, disconnected from the world, filled with self-hatred, and ready to give up.

Dear Stranger: You don’t know much about me. Hey, I don’t know much about you. But please understand that I don’t care what you’ve done.

State of Crisis

When I was around the age of 17 I was in a state of crisis. I isolated myself from the world, secluded from my parents, my friends and even myself. I was in my second semester of my junior year of high school when, out of severe concern, my parents decided to send me to Spring Ridge Academy.

Can’t Into Cans

I’d like to start off today’s celebration by posing a question … What is education? Is it having a 4.0 GPA in high school? Is it getting a college degree from an Ivy League school? Or is it becoming a brain surgeon?

Glitter Dancer

Every day of the past 16 months, I’ve been striving to live a meaningful life. At times I’ve doubted myself, but I’ve never lost sight of that light shining bright somewhere in the distance.

"Not only did Spring Ridge Academy help my daughter rediscover herself, they engaged and challenged our whole family to participate, learn and grow alongside her. That has been the most significant experience of SRA; the family involvement."
