Parents choose Spring Rindge Academy because they believe their daughter has reached a point where she cannot thrive in her home environment. This is a difficult decision and one that requires parents to trust and accept assistance in caring for their daughter.

At Spring Ridge Academy we understand the magnitude of this decision and our responsibility in facilitating a nurturing, meaningful and safe experience for our students and families.

Many of our students and families have experienced little success in out patient therapy prior to enrolling at SRA. Often these young women have manipulated and lied to therapists or have simply been unable to sustain appropriate behavior and healthy choices.

Some have refused therapy altogether. Our therapeutic milieu and approach is designed to address each student’s unique set of issues, challenges and strengths and to assist the family in making changes that support each member’s growth.

The therapists and staff of SRA are able to effectively work with each student by building trusting and honest relationships. We offer an integrated program that utilizes an overlay of techniques addressing individual and family issues.

Academics at Spring Ridge:

Image of Boarding High School for Troubled Girls in ArizonaThe core of a Spring Ridge Academy education is the learning process. The academic environment at SRA nurtures young women to become confident, competent, and responsible students while gaining the necessary skills to engage in and enjoy the lifelong process of learning.

The academic program is traditional college preparatory, with an emphasis on writing skills, critical thinking, problem solving, and communication. Our program offers a classroom environment that is small and structured. The academic atmosphere is one that promotes individual accountability, creativity and integrity.

Our curriculum is designed to both assist students who have struggled or fallen behind and to challenge and prepare even the most dedicated student for future academic endeavors. Key subjects include English, math, social studies, science, foreign languagea, the arts, P.E. and technology.

Each Spring Ridge Academy student is assigned an academic advisor. An advisor is a faculty member who provides academic counsel, support and encouragement to the student as she works toward reaching her maximum potential. The Academic Advisors works closely with the student’s therapist on a treatment team providing a holistic and efficient overall process.

In addition to treatment team meetings, the entire faculty meets every week to review the academic and social progress of each student and to plan ways to work together in order to guide all students toward success. Detailed comments from teachers and advisors are provided in a written monthly update to assist parents in understanding their daughters’ academic progress.
