Why Alpine Academy
Therapeutic Schools Are


Alpine Academy was created in 2001 as a program of Utah Youth Village, a nonprofit organization founded in 1969. Both our Lakeview Campus for males and our Mountain View Campus for females are licensed as residential treatment facilities in the state of Utah. Each is 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.

Alpine Academy is a nationally certified Teaching-Family Model treatment program. Through its strength-based, trauma-informed, individualized approach, students are taught healthy behaviors in a setting that replicates family, school, and community life.

How are we different?

The Teaching-Family Model is evidence-based and empirically tested. Our immersive therapeutic approach combines academics, clinical therapy, and residential treatment to create a holistic therapeutic environment, with all of our staff coordinating treatment for your child.

    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.
