Program Description:

Gateway Academy is a residential program designed to give young men every advantage in their transition back to family, relationships and life. Gateway Academy is resolute that each young man receives an individualized balance of intense therapy, accredited schooling and recreational ventures. Parents can rest assured that their son is learning to create a life where he feels worthwhile, connected and in control.

Gateway Academy has two homes: a 16-bed Victorian home, and a 24-bed Ranch style home. Each home is intentionally small in size so as to impact each young man on a rare and individual level. Gateway Academy serves boys ages 14 to 17 struggling with depression, anxiety, oppositional behaviors, impulsivity and attention problems, social problems, diminished self-esteem, substance abuse difficulties at home, relationship problems, identity and developmental issues academic deficits and other comparable difficulties. Young men with these issues are mentored in personal, social and intellectual development.

Gateway Academy’s intensive treatment and recreational program is run by highly credentialed clinicians that ensure the disciplines of academics, therapy and experiential activities are dynamically integrated. Specifically, each young man receives weekly individual and family therapy, as well as daily specialized groups according to their individual needs. These groups include: Adolescent Male Development, Trauma Resolution, Anxiety and Depression, Substance Abuse, Competency and Skill Development, and Transition. Additionally, Gateway Academy utilizes an integrated recreational and wilderness approach to provide a well-rounded cognitive, emotional, and physical growth experience. Each young man is also provided on-site psychiatric services as needed. Gateway Academy also offers an individualized education program structured to assist each youth to attain their academic potential. The academic program is provisionally accredited by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. The therapeutic and academic components are augmented by community service projects, independent living skills, community resource networking, and a fine arts program.
