Alpine Academy offers both core and elective curricular options with appropriate age/grade level classes for each youth. Classes are taught by experienced educators who are licensed as highly qualified teachers in their content area. A wide variety of electives and challenging classes create an academic setting that is rewarding and stimulating for students who are highly motivated to learn. For students who lack academic self-esteem, have learning disabilities, or have developed self-defeating behaviors around school, the comprehensive treatment team will identify underlying causes and target specific skills that will help the student meaningfully access the curriculum.
Our goal is that our students leave our program empowered with the skills they need to live happily and productively within their own families. We prepare both the student and the family for a stable transition from our structured treatment setting to their home environment- equipped with skills that will help them do well at home, in school, at work, and as contributing members of their community.

Club days are separated into two parts, morning rotations, and afternoon clubs. These activities supplement the academic curriculum through experiential learning in focused subject areas. Rotations and clubs are organized and led by staff that has particular expertise in the subject area. They change depending upon the season and interests of the youth. Participation in rotations and clubs allows students to learn a topic that isn’t normally offered in the class schedule and gain experience through participatory activities and field trips.
