Does Your Teen Struggle with Limited Attention and Hyperactivity?
Stillwater Academy is a boarding school that has highly specialized therapy for teens struggling with future-impacting issues including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ADHD is a chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. ADHD often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood. It may contribute to low self-esteem, troubled relationships, and difficulty at school or work.
For many teens struggling with ADHD, traditional schools and at-home environments can be overwhelming and challenging to navigate. We offer a unique approach to education and therapy that can help these teens overcome their challenges and achieve success.
One of the primary benefits of Stillwater Academy is it offers a comprehensive academic program that is tailored to meet the unique needs of students with ADHD. The curriculum is designed to be flexible and accommodating, allowing students to work at their own pace and focus on areas where they may need extra support. Teachers are trained in working with students who have ADHD and are equipped to provide individualized attention and guidance.
In addition to academic support, Stillwater Academy offers a wide range of therapeutic services that are designed to address the emotional and behavioral challenges that often accompany ADHD. The school employs a team of licensed therapists who work closely with students to identify their specific needs and develop individualized treatment plans. Therapy may include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, equine therapy, and other specialized interventions.
One of the unique features of Stillwater Academy is its emphasis on outdoor education and adventure therapy. The school is situated on a beautiful 2,000-acre campus that includes lakes, rivers, forests, and mountains. Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of outdoor activities, such as hiking, rock climbing, camping, and canoeing. These experiences can be powerful tools for building confidence, self-esteem, and resilience, and can help students develop important life skills such as teamwork, problem-solving, and leadership.
For many troubled teens, the social environment at traditional schools can be a significant source of stress and anxiety. Stillwater Academy offers a supportive and nurturing community that is focused on helping students build positive relationships and develop healthy social skills. The school has a low student-to-teacher ratio, which allows for more individual attention and support. Additionally, students participate in regular group therapy sessions and social activities that are designed to promote social skills and healthy relationships.
For parents of troubled teens, the decision to send their child to a boarding school can be difficult. Stillwater Academy understands this and strives to create a partnership with parents that is based on open communication and collaboration. We provide regular updates on the students’ progress, and parents are encouraged to participate in therapy sessions and other aspects of their child’s treatment.

We firmly believe that lasting change happens in the heart and that positive actions need repeated exercise to grow into familiar habits. We’re not interested in quick or superficial fixes, and don’t want to see your teen fall back into old habits once returning home.
