Parent Testimonial:Image of Therapeutic School in Idaho / Montana Region“Making the decision to send Mitchell to Turning Winds Academic Institute has been the hardest thing I have ever done. It has been stressful, frustrating, and every other emotion you can think of. But in my heart I loved my son so much I knew that I needed to do something more then I was capable of doing on my own…

The healing that has taking place in his heart is so amazing to see. Seeing where he is right now and the steps that he has taken and the things that he has accomplished have made this sacrifice worthwhile.”

Student Testimonial:
“I have learned that I can achieve great things. With hard work and dedication, anything is possible for my future. School is the most important decision in my life right now and I need to get as much out of the experience to ensure a bright future for myself.

School used to be a by-product of the social scene, but now I have learned it is the opposite. I have all the tools necessary to pursue my dreams, but I have to put in the work to do so. Before, I was focused on the wrong stuff, but now I am channeled in the right direction.”
