Our 4-Month Semester Forward Program is a therapeutically intense program with powerful benefits.

  • Are you looking for her next steps after a wilderness program?
  • Has your teen daughter fallen behind academically?

Our program gives your daughter the opportunity to earn up to a semester’s worth of credit at the completion of 4 months with us.

We are with you every step of the way. Our Master’s Level Integration Coaching is included as she transitions home.

Girls who are interested in the Semester Forward Program will be screened on a case-by-case basis. Below is a list of characteristics that would benefit the most from this 4 month program, though it is by no means an exhaustive list:

Girls who are:

  •  willing to change but need extra tools and support to do so. 
  •  coming from a wilderness therapy program.
  •  experiencing body image issues.
  •  experiencing anxiety from bullying.
  •  exhibit symptoms related to trauma.
  •  would benefit from positive peer support.
  •  need to overcome fear and anxiety about their academics.
  •  in contentious conflict with parents and exhibit defiant behavior.
  •  have general anxiety or depression.

We will work closely with you to determine if your daughter needs an extension beyond 4 months after working together for a few months.
