Boulder Creek Academy students have a history of emotional and learning struggles, and seek to be accepted.

These 14-18 year-olds are bright and creative, but learning differences and behavioral or emotional problems have hindered their academic performance. They often require direction to help them achieve to their potential.

While no two students are alike, a Boulder Creek Academy student typically faces emotional, learning, or behavioral challenges, has an IQ over 90, and:

-Is capable but discouraged by many years of academic struggle
-Seeks approval from adults
-Sees themselves as different from peers
-Feels isolated; low peer acceptance and/or low self-esteem
-Is unable to plan ahead and see the consequences of their actions
-Needs consistent direction
-Experienced many failures despite strong gifts
-Experimented with drugs and alcohol
