Wolf Creek Academy specializes in helping teenagers who are experiencing behavioral difficulties, anger, depression, attachment disorders, or who are participating in self-harm or have diminishing academic performance due to trauma in their life. We also treat social issues, disrespect, minor drug abuse, ODD, ADD, and ADHD, while providing a safe haven for teens and a self-paced school to help them get caught up academically.
A Safe Home Environment
Wolf Creek Academy provides a safe home environment for adolescents who have lost sight of a clear and positive future. Our typical students are quite capable of becoming mature and dependable young adults if given the proper motivation and direction, outside of the influences in their life that have caused them to go into a downward spiral. In our program, teens are able to reach their highest potential through the tools and education we provide. Many of our students are gifted and are given the opportunity to be challenged with advanced courses. The majority of the students who enroll in our program continue their education in college upon completion.

A high school PE credit is given for this class and is mandatory. Weekly physical activities vary seasonally from white water rafting, trail hiking, and snow skiing/snowboarding. Weekly social activities vary from bowling, going to the movies, hiking, church, museums, and more.
