Student Profile at one of the Top Boys Boarding Schools
As one of the best boys boarding schools, we serve high school boys, ages 14-18 with an IQ of 90 and above. Often bright yet unmotivated, our student’s considerable strengths have been overshadowed by a wide range of issues including, but not limited to:
-Mild to moderate psychiatric problems such as anxiety and depressive disorders; learning differences; attentional difficulties, impulsivity and depression
-Familial difficulties such as parent-child relational problems; sibling discord; unresolved grief and loss; and adoption
-Mild to moderate substance abuse problems; video game addiction
-Disruptive and oppositional behaviors
-Low self-esteem; negative peer group; interpersonal/social deficits; academic underachievement; school refusal/truancy
-We do not admit students who live with a history marked by Conduct Disorder; sexually deviant behaviors; significant history of violence; severe and persistent mental illness; longstanding, intractable chemical dependency
At Trails Academy, we work with families to assure the smoothest transition into our program. We are here to help parents arrange transportation plans from home or another therapeutic program.
