Spring Ridge Academy connects a college preparatory curriculum with sophisticated therapeutic programming in a boarding school environment
We interweave multimodal clinical work, comprehensive support services, college-prep academics, a connected milieu, and social, emotional, and life skills.
Our community fosters healthy relationships in emotional, relational, intellectual, physical, and spiritual realms while helping young women embody a sense of self that drives their relationships, thoughts, and feelings.
SRA Student and Family
Spring Ridge Academy serves bright, creative, talented adolescent women struggling to live to their potential. Our approach recognizes a variety of symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, disconnection, apathy, and destructive decision-making, that interfere with their success and positive family dynamics.
Many of these symptoms are a sign of deeper internal issues stemming from trauma, immaturity, and attachment needs.
Successful Spring Ridge Academy families are willing to be introspective and to examine the influence they have on the family system. Parents participate in their own change process alongside their daughter, which results in a growth experience that allows for long-term application, genuine authenticity, and family attunement.
Our dynamic clinical team offers a variety of therapeutic modalities used to serve the needs of individual students, including developmental family systems, trauma lenses (employing brain and body-based modalities), EMDR, sensorimotor psychotherapy, somatic experiencing, hypnotherapy, sand tray therapy, trauma-informed yoga and acrobatic partner yoga, Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE), Post-Induction Therapy (PIT), art therapies, and neurofeedback.
As students come to the end of the program, we support each student’s transition with individual and home planning services that include relapse prevention planning, aftercare planning and coordination, and digital literacy education. After transition, we provide routine family and alumni follow up calls and 24/7 support for alumni and parents.

- On- and off-campus recovery meetings, including, AA, NA, Al-Anon and CoDA

Students engage in a variety of recreational and service activities in our weekend programming.
