Minnesota Girls Academy

Treatment outside the home may be necessary when parents have exhausted out-patient therapy options. Many coming to our program are struggling academically, challenged with developing and nurturing healthy relationships, making poor choices, suffering from anxiety and depression or are self-harming. The students come to our program when parents feel intervention is necessary and desire a loving and safe, nurturing home-like, structured environment, where their child can receive more intensive therapy and healing; away from the distractions and elements contributing to the problems.

The Minnesota Girls Academy is designed to serve females aged 13 to 17 (high school age) at the time of admission who have been experiencing social, emotional, behavioral, family and/or academic struggles.
