ASPIRE is the acronym for Alpine Student Preparation for Independence, Responsibility, and Education. Students in ASPIRE experience the same level of supervision, focus on skill-building highlighted in therapeutic treatment plan goals, and involvement in campus and school activities as every other student at Alpine Academy. Yet ASPIRE is different from the other homes. Students live in a residential model that can better prepare them for young adult life.
