Our Typical Student Profile & Behaviors
We’re Selective in Our Admissions Process to Endure Safety and Successful Outcomes for Our Students
Sedona Sky Academy is a therapeutic boarding school and residential treatment center for girls 13-18 – with the oldest admitted students being 17 1/2 upon admission.
We serve as a boarding school, therapeutic program, and inpatient residential treatment center all in one. The girls who attend Sedona Sky have a wide range of struggles to overcome, but our program can work for young women of many needs and diverse backgrounds.
Young Women Who Struggle are Much More than the Sum of Poor Choices
A Sedona Sky girl may be struggling with any number of self-destructive behaviors, but we recognize that they are so much more than their behaviors. They are artists and athletes and equestrians. They are future scientists and doctors, writers and . . . maybe astronauts.
They have lost themselves along the way, and have made some poor choices, but they have a chance to begin a new journey here.
At Sedona Sky, they are more than any label or diagnosis – they are a whole person with needs, passions, interests and strengths.
