Specializing in Trauma, Anxiety & Depression
Sedona Sky High – Ages 14-18 – Sedona Sky Middle – Ages 11-14
Sedona Sky Academy is a specialized school exclusively for struggling girls. Sedona Sky is unique by offering the best of therapeutic boarding schools (warm environment, strong academics) and residential treatment centers (clinical sophistication, high staff to student ratios).
Sedona Sky Academy is a safe place of healing, hope, and trust where young women heal and family relationships are restored. Families trust our experienced, exemplary staff and rely on the clinically sophisticated therapy we offer. Because we’re specialized in trauma, anxiety, and depression-related symptoms specifically for girls, we produce better outcomes than other more generalized residential treatment centers for girls.
Our program includes individual and group therapy combined with world class academic instruction, arts, athletics, personal fitness, culinary arts, community service, off-campus field trips and experiential therapy.
All aspects of our program, our environment, and each activity is designed to strengthen and enhance the student’s individual treatment goals.

How to Know if Sedona Sky Academy
is Right for Your Daughter
For many young women, the adolescent years are often a difficult time. Unlike other residential treatment centers, Sedona Sky Academy is uniquely designed to assist adolescent girls who are struggling to navigate through trauma, anxiety and depression-related issues.
Our focus is to help the young ladies of Sedona Sky to regain control of their lives, restore their destiny for greatness, and reset their future for something very special.
We do this by helping our girls feel safe and in control again, to learn healthy communication with parents and family members, to become self-aware and operate through emotional control and self-confidence.
Happiness, Hope, Memories

Our residential treatment environment combines a warm, inviting campus—specifically built to reflect the best ingredients of a loving home—with the benefits of an intimate setting that encourages academic excellence.
Sedona Sky is truly a healing environment, a special place where young ladies get a second chance to excel.
With a clinical sophistication and group specialization, the professional staff of Sedona Sky will meet the specific needs of your daughter by engaging her “where she is” – helping her find a new healthier, happier life path.
Our residential treatment center has the feel of equestrian therapeutic boarding schools and delivers hope and renewed life through “teen-friendly” individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy – all offered by experienced, credentialed therapists who are each individually licensed by the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Services.
As a top residential treatment center for trauma, anxiety and depression, Sedona Sky’s clinical specialties include a powerful equine therapy curriculum focused on natural horsemanship. Girls uniquely find peace and comfort when working with horses, and our equine program is one element that makes Sedona Sky a memorable experience that will last a lifetime.
For our younger girls, the equine therapy includes baby horses (foals) and specific skill building that teaches accountability and directly relates back to the girls’ personal experiences.
What Makes Sedona Sky Academy Unique?
Age Appropriate Middle School and High School Programs
As a leading residential treatment center for girls, every detail of our restorative program is designed with the unique needs of young ladies ages.
We are uniquely situated to be able to meet the needs of both the younger student through our middle school and the older students at our high school. Thus, the and less mature early teen that may not be ready to join high school peers, will have the ability to transition to the high school as she grows and matures.
From the sensitivity of our group process, to the bonds we nurture between girls and horses in equine therapy, we work to ensure that our girls experience the kind of therapy that will promote lasting change. We focus on teenage girls who are dealing with trauma, depression, and anxiety and are having difficulty functioning in their home environment.
We don’t admit girls who have history of physical violence, bullying, or severe mental illness.
