We focus exclusively on girls ages 10 – 14 because we know how precious and special this time of life can be. We also appreciate how turbulent and uncertain these years can feel. We love this age and we love these girls. This feeling pervades our community.
Our family-style community is supportive, nurturing, and close-knit. Our environment is purposely designed to provide space to develop friendships, repair relationships, and practice adaptive communication. Students heal from the inside out; developing strength, confidence, resilience, and self-worth.

Students learn important living skills which promote confidence, accountability and responsibility.
Within their community groups, students develop close friendships and learn about conflict resolution.
