Alpine Academy is honored to have been selected this year’s winner for the Utah Best of State program in the category of “Youth Treatment Centers”.

This marks the 7th time that Alpine Academy has received this honor since 2010.

According to the Best of State website, “the Best of State Awards were created to recognize outstanding individuals, organizations and businesses in Utah. By recognizing excellence in our community and sharing examples of success and triumph in so many worthy endeavors, we hope all will be inspired to reach a little higher, to try a little harder, and to work a little smarter for our dreams and goals.”

Alpine Academy has certainly been inspired by so many others in this field of helping youth and families.

Alpine is grateful for the collaboration and support given by other wonderful programs and professionals engaged in this great work.

The Best of State judges evaluate organizations based on three criteria: Excelling in their endeavors, Using innovative approaches and methods, and Contributing to a better quality of life.

Alpine Academy is constantly striving to improve the lives of students and families. This is best accomplished through their innovative approach to treatment using the evidence-based Teaching-Family Model.

About Alpine Academy

Alpine Academy, founded in 2001, is a non-profit organization, owned by Utah Youth Village, founded in 1969.

We are licensed as a residential treatment facility in the state of Utah and are certified as a non-public school. Treatment takes place in a family-style environment, which increases opportunities to realize and teach to maladaptive behaviors.

This multi-dimensional strategy is a catalyst providing a nurturing, individualized, and strength-based treatment environment. Alpine Academy focuses on a therapeutically based family-style environment, with an emphasis on individualized treatment for each girl and her family. In addition to an intensive therapeutic environment, we provide comprehensive academic services. These services are provided by an accredited private school with small class size, academic plans tailored to meet each student’s needs, and a challenging yet supportive curriculum. Students may have individualized education programs, such as student-specific study at the university level, and specialized educational programs as needed.

Our parent company, Utah Youth Village, is one of the largest and oldest charities in Utah helping troubled children. It is the only organization in Utah certified to use the Teaching-Family Model, perhaps the most thoroughly researched treatment method for troubled children and families in use today. Those trained in the Teaching-Family Model provide security and love while teaching consistency and respect.
