A Typical Day

A Typical Day at Sedona Sky Academy

Sedona Sky Academy offers the best in a therapeutic boarding school for girls. We provide teenage girls an ideal balance of structure, education, therapy and fun.

Weekdays are primarily focused on school and therapy, with time set aside for playing sports, doing chores, and finishing homework. Students can play basketball, soccer, volleyball and softball competitively against other schools in the area, start a game of four square on our court, or engage in some other form of physical activity each day.

Enjoying Campus and Community

Our lush campus in the Verde Valley of central Arizona creates an ideal setting for exercise, play, and reflection. A lazy creek runs alongside our western border and leads to three southern colonial-style mansions, a full-size soccer field and track, and a pasture which houses a herd of horses.

Students live in three comfortable, home-like dorms that are named after the trees that line our campus – Juniper, Willow and Sycamore – each with its own library and team of residential and clinical staff.

A Safe Place to Recover and Heal

Weekend Activities to Enjoy the Area and New Friends

On weekends, students enjoy a more relaxed schedule that features some of their favorite activities, including equine therapy and off-campus trips. The girls are able to sleep in until 8 a.m., watch movies, play games, and enjoy a wide variety of on-and-off campus activities. More advanced students may take hikes in the red rock canyons of Sedona, go bowling or ice skating, or participate in a number of other outings. During their free time, students often read, crochet, write letters home, play music, or work on art or homework.

Every activity on the schedule is designed to help girls recognize the need for change and begin to implement those changes so that they can be happier and more engaged in their lives. Our students also learn the value of service through volunteer projects such as singing at a retirement community, or feeding the homeless every Friday. Those who would like to attend religious services can go to church or temple on weekends.

Field Trips

Students participate in educational field trips to sites around Arizona, drawing on the cultural and natural history of the area. Each field trip provides students with learning experiences in science, history, nature, English composition, culture or art.

We have taken trips to the Presidential Classroom program in Washington, D.C., the Utah Shakespearean Festival, the Grand Canyon, and the Navajo Reservation.
