Located in Murray, Utah, La Europa Academy is an all-girls school and residential treatment center designed specifically for girls aged 14-17. La Europa Academy is a proud member of the National Association for Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP). We specialize in treating girls with severe anxiety and depression, emerging personality features, addictive behaviors, trauma, grief and loss, relationship issues, school avoidance, and family problems.
The Academy utilizes an arts program that encourages students to express themselves and begin healing through art and expressive therapy. Using the arts in connection with our clinical model helps students to understand their choices, interrupt destructive cycles, and reconnect with their families.
The school uses positive reinforcement to encourage students to recognize their own talents and strengths. The college preparatory curriculum promises to challenge each girl and instill her with the skills she needs to succeed in higher levels of academics. And with a low student-to-faculty ratio, all girls receive quality amounts of attention.
La Europa Academy is not all therapy and academics, though. Students enjoy a thriving social life. La Europa Academy is located in an urban setting, which gives the students many opportunities to get out and about in the community and encourages an easier transition out of the program on completion. Each girl boards with 2-3 roommates to a bedroom, giving her privacy and the chance to bond with other students. New students are assigned a peer mentor to facilitate the integration process. La Europa Academy girls also participate in many fun and challenging extracurricular activities, such as hiking, rappelling, and snowshoeing.
