Campus Life


Unlike traditional schools, graduation ceremonies at Alpine focus on a single student. Their accomplishment is celebrated with their family and many others closest to them during their journey. And every graduation ceremony ends with a very special Alpine tradition. View our video gallery to watch a selection of graduations and hear first-hand our students’ transformation.

Campus Life

Alpine Academy is located next to a multitude of easily accessible activities and recreation. Within minutes of campus are hiking and horse trails, swimming, bowling, laser tag, golf, and volunteer opportunities. Alpine students are able to participate in day trips to museums, art festivals, car shows, theaters, concerts, comic cons, amusement parks, and a plethora of additional outdoor activities like fishing, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, trampoline parks, water parks, ice skating, and sledding. Short activities like the ones listed here occur weekly and vary depending on the season.

Adventure Trips

Alpine Academy participates in adventure trips where students and staff may for a day trip or camping overnight. During these trips the students have the opportunity to be challenged in a different environment, display the leadership and peer relation skills they’ve learned, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Experiences include hiking, rock climbing and bouldering, fishing, water sports, ziplines, and rope courses. The emphasis is on growth and development, just as much as fun. These trips are for all students and the cost is included in tuition fees.

Physical Activity

Alpine Academy is a great time for teens to discover ways in which athletics and physical fitness can become helpful in expending pent–up energy, blowing off steam, and experiencing new ways to cope with their daily struggles through physical activity.

It’s common to see a pick-up game of basketball at lunch time or a therapy session with a student and therapist walking around campus or playing catch. Alpine Academy’s campus provides wide open space as well as facilities for moving around and learning new physical skills in a fun, safe, and friendly environment. Several students have learned to ride a bike or gone sleigh riding for the first time. Some find a new-found love for weight lifting or rowing. Others are quite athletic and may be skilled at a team sport. They are encouraged to try new experiences that provide choices for them in how to spend their time and work through difficult issues. As they develop their skills, gain strength and coordination, and feel better in their bodies, their self confidence grows.

Media Time

Students are able to access electronic games, music, movies, and other technological activities under the direct supervision of the Teen LIFE Coach team. Privileges and personal time are earned throughout the week by completing schoolwork, fully participating in therapy, and managing personal responsibilities such as laundry and household chores. Media time is closely monitored to ensure its content is appropriate for our milieu.

Team Sports

Students can participate on community recreation teams and participate in county soccer, basketball and baseball leagues. This allows students who have a particular skill and interest in a team sport to be a part of a team and complete to improve those skills. Practices and games provide our students the opportunity to also practice their social skills with peers outside of our program. They are able to expand their skill, keep their commitments, learn a new hobby, strengthen their resilience, stay active, and practice good teamwork and sportsmanship.

Service and Volunteering

Students have opportunities at school in the home to participate in service projects and volunteer with different charitable organizations. Some of these experiences include helping out at the humane society, participating in 5K runs for cancer awareness and fundraising, helping with student art projects and local elementary schools, cleaning the Children’s Justice Center, working at the local food bank, and making blankets for the city fire department. Teen LIFE Coaches seek out these opportunities in the community and provide the teens in their home with opportunities to serve others.

Parent Weekends

Parents will have an opportunity to explore the campus and see the space that their child will be learning and living in. Parents will also have time to meet with therapists and school teachers to get an accurate assessment of how their child is doing here at Alpine Academy.
