Established in 1997, Montana Academy is a non-profit, co-educational, therapeutic boarding school located in Northwest Montana.

Known for a unique combination of clinical sophistication, ambitious academics and an effective therapeutic program, the leadership and staff at Montana Academy bring more than 175 years of cumulative experience to students and their families. Our approach in working with adolescent struggles requires a coordinated and sustained effort that promotes developmental maturation through healthy relationships. 

Our clinical, academic, and program structures have been designed from this understanding and promote this goal —to help struggling students move on to academic and interpersonal successes, which follow from a restoration of normal adolescent maturity.

Community, Character, Connection

For the past two decades, Montana Academy has taken an approach that places character development at the heart of our developmental model in helping young students mature. Our community is one in which we combine a comprehensive array of therapeutics, college preparatory academics, and a robust offering of experiential and skill-building programmatic opportunities. We strive for an integrated coeducational community in which engagement in each of these areas informs an understanding of and engagement with the other, ultimately leading to the development of mature character in relation to the surrounding environment.

Montana Academy provided multidimensional support for our son — formal therapy, group work, medicine management, academics. The parent support is also phenomenal. We became very bonded to the other parents in our cohort.
