Montana Academy is a private therapeutic boarding school for young people ages 14 to 17 at crisis points in their lives.
Many of our students have endured traumas, struggled with learning difficulties or school or social failure. Many have emotional symptoms such as depression, tantrums or anxiety that have disrupted their ability to function on a day-to-day basis.
