Stillwater Academy

School Description:

Stillwater Academy was founded in 1998 to help support the theraputic program called Turnabout. It is a family-based program designed to help teens, ages 12 to 18, overcome challenges and bring families closer together.  We believe anger, running away, school failure, drup/alcohol abuse, sexual promiscuity and depression are typically outward manifestations of issues that may be going on beneath the surface in a teenager's life.  It is our mission to help teens and their families identify and resolve these underlying issues.  We believe change is always possible.  We believe choice, personal responsibility, awareness, compassion, self-discover, challenge and hard work are elements necessary to bring about change.

Stillwater Academy is a school developed to meet the needs of junior high and high school students as part of their experience at Turnabout.  It offers students the opportunity to go to school in a safe and secure environment, as well as rediscover the enjoyment and power of learning.  Our teachers and counselors work closey together to ensure consistency between the therapy components of the program and the school.
