Our goal is for our graduates to leave Spring Ridge Academy with the confidence and skills to navigate a wide range of life challenges. We do this through a holistic approach that integrates therapy, family, community, and academics to ensure that our students have a well-rounded experience.
We believe that connection heals, so building relationships with our students and their families is a top priority. Our staff, from therapists to teachers to coaches, are trained in trauma-informed care to create a campus environment that is supportive and caring. At the same time, we provide a structure that promotes change, success, and excellence.
The Spring Ridge Academy Difference
Spring Ridge Academy students learn to balance their lives, including self-care, family, friends, school, and extra-curricular activities. They build trust-based relationships based on authenticity and honesty. At Spring Ridge, we want our students to become leaders of their lives by developing and operating from a personal system of values.
Every Spring Ridge Academy graduate leaves with a comprehensive, personalized transition plan that sets them up for success. A critical component of this is the monthly family visits, phone calls, and weekly family therapy. Building a supportive structure at home and providing the opportunity for the whole family to practice new skills is the key to success.
At Spring Ridge Academy we have a focused admissions criteria. The young women that Spring Ridge 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 Spring Ridge 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.
What Parents Say About Spring Ridge
I enjoyed working with the staff. The parent workshops were very helpful to understanding myself and my daughter. The open dialogue and feedback. The POSITIVE nature of the program. Trust The Process!!!!!!!!!!
Phases 3 and 4's integration and transition work to help integrate our daughter back into our home/family life. We liked all the workshops and the family therapy. They were extremely valuable to our family. We like that the program helped our daughter believe in herself and believe that her life has value. We valued the calls from the CLD. The graduations we attended were inspirational and very moving.
I have never been at a place where the staff are all so committed to aiding the students to find their voice and their identity.
The other girls seemed to love and support each other and I always had a good feeling about the staff and their sincere efforts to help the girls. I thought the staff did an excellent job keeping up with the revolving door of students and their individual needs...don't know how they did it. I doubt that other programs have the skill or resources to focus on bringing the family along with the child so that everyone has been given new tools to work on and experiential opportunities to grow.
I enjoyed the process/journey. The Therapy sessions for our family were incredible. The parent workshops were very good. The calls with CLD were also excellent.
Spring Ridge Academy helped establish appropriate boundaries within family context and gave our duaghter save environment to re-discover herself. School was also very good at helping her see me in a different light and to forge a better relationship.
I liked how Spring Ridge Academy encompassed the whole family to be involved in the process of healing, as we all benefited as well in our individual way and as a unit.
The workshops that we attended were excellent. The way in which the different aspects of our daughter's time at Spring Ridge Academy were integrated was also excellent, i.e. therapy work, academics, community life and the overall family involvement were, I'm certain, very instrumental in us having a successful outcome as a family. In addition, the level of expertise and dedication of the staff was superb.
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.
Therapy was excellent, workshops were helpful, and seeing our daughter's re-engagement with school was truly outstanding.
Spring Ridge Academy was a kind and caring place. I liked the holistic approach that they take to school and treatment which helps the girls build self confidence.
