Discover Seven Stars

Seven Stars is a therapeutic program for children with neurodevelopmental disorders ages 13-18. We offer students and their families the opportunity to build lifelong skills and confidence with the finest individualized and comprehensive treatment plans available.

Our program is designed to utilize the best in residential, wilderness adventure, and outdoor environments. Seven Stars’ foundation of success is built upon positive psychology. We use a personalized and strengths-based approach in order to help students identify and develop their strengths.

We work to avoid power struggles and punitive punishments. Our program encourages our students to get involved in the community, establish fast resets, and how to avoid and deal with breakdowns. We connect our students with logical and natural consequences of their actions. Through these practices, our students grow and begin changing their behaviors.

Seven Stars offers the most comprehensive program and facilities available, while also operating as a small and highly personalized therapeutic program.

Set among the beautiful Wasatch Mountains, the local area offers plenty for adventure and wilderness expeditions. We use the natural surroundings for hiking, mountain biking, backpacking, rock climbing, skiing, and water activities.

I don't know how to say thank you enough. Before Seven Stars I wanted to run away. Today I adore my son who is turning into a young man.

Judith Jacques
Executive Director - Discover Seven Stars, Elevations RTC & ViewPoint Center

Feeling frustrated by the systemic constraints to affect real change in the lives of adolescents in the public school system, she was on the verge of leaving education altogether. Fortunately, Judith was offered a role as a teacher in a residential treatment center and found a renewed interest in working with students in an environment where students and their needs are a priority.  Judith spent the next 2 years as a teacher, then 10 years as an academic director before moving into operations of a residential treatment center as a program director. She was one of the original founders of Elevations RTC and ViewPoint Center.

Judith loves to spend her time with her family, practicing yoga, and continuing to explore her passion for history.  She combines her passions of travel and history into trips to explore historical sites and examination of the past and how we learn from one another. Judith’s passions have helped shape her personal philosophy and approach in working within a residential treatment setting.

Education – BS in Education from Millersville University of Pennsylvania , MEd in Special Education from Westminister College.

Learning is a social and emotional activity.  If students are not socially and emotionally available little change can be expected in the classroom or at home.  We have to meet them where they are and start with helping them to be open to change.
