Campus Life

We focus on helping students 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 students. 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.
