THREE SPRINGS WELCOMES NEW DOMINION SCHOOL
by: Mike Watson, President
We are pleased to announce the acquisition of New Dominion School and it's programs in Maryland
and Virginia. We are very excited about this new addition to our family of programs and know it will offer even more opportunities
to assist emotionally and behaviorally disturbed youths and their families. We appreciate the hard work and dedication of Mack
O'Connor, Melvin Klement and Richard Warren in their development and operation of these programs. Their two fine Directors,
Chris Yates in Virginia and Tim Snyder in Maryland both have many years with New Dominion, and we are very excited
about their future with Three Springs. We will continue the tradition of quality and care they have given to children who need New
New Dominion is an outdoor therapeutic program that provides residential treatment services to adolescent
males. These boys, who are experiencing emotional/behavioral problems, are referred from numerous professional and state agencies
throughout the country. Each program is licensed in their respective states as a residential treatment program and private school;
with the Virginia program having Accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The program uses the group process
approach and wilderness/adventure based therapy that is similar to that utilized by Three Springs Outdoor Treatment Programs.
We are immensely impressed with the staff at New Dominions and look forward to the opportunity to work
with them. Each has demonstrated their commitment to those youth and we plan to maintain staff as is on both campuses. In short it
will be "business as usual" at New Dominion.
Thank you for your continued support of this and all of Three Springs' programs.
