Alpine Academy was created in 2001 as a program of Utah Youth Village, a nonprofit organization founded in 1969. We are licensed as a residential treatment facility in the state of Utah and are certified as a non-public school.

Treatment takes place in a family-style environment, which provides a nurturing, individualized, and strength-based treatment environment.

In addition to an intensive therapeutic environment, we provide comprehensive academic services that are designed to help improve your child’s academic self-esteem and to get them back on-track to be successful at home, or in college.

Utah Youth Village

Our parent company, Utah Youth Village, is one of the largest and oldest charities in Utah helping troubled children. It is the only organization in Utah certified to use the Teaching-Family Model, perhaps the most thoroughly researched treatment method for troubled children and families in use today. Those trained in the Teaching-Family Model provide security and love while teaching consistency and respect. For more information on the Teaching-Family Model, please click here.
