Uinta Academy is a residential treatment program for young women, ages 13 through 17 years, and adult women, ages 18 through 21 years. Uinta Academy is nestled in the scenic Cache Valley of northern Utah where the students reside in five large homes. Our approach effectively and expertly blends clinical therapies with an evidence-based therapeutic milieu to foster healthy identity development in young women. Through the therapeutic guidance of an expert team of clinicians and educators, our students build a sense of competence and strong self- esteem.
Uinta Academy is uniquely designed to treat trauma-based disorders, attachment/adoption disorders, mood disorders, ADHD, Social Learning Disorders, and academic underachievement. We employ several experiential therapies in order to help our young women engage in their individual therapeutic processes. Our comprehensive equine program, which includes horse ownership, equine assisted psychotherapy, equine EMDR, riding, and natural horsemanship, teaches transferable relationship skills.
Uinta Academy’s hallmarks include our comprehensive family programming, integrated transition program, individualized academics, cultural arts experiences, extra-curricular clubs and service opportunities, explorations trips, a focus on healthy lifestyle choices, and horticultural therapy.
