Right Way Academy is a new private coed boarding school for students age 13-22, who need a "safe, secure, therapeutic environment" as they recover from chemical dependency and other high risk disorders and behaviors. Right Way's approach is long-term and the staff recommends that students and families make a 12-month commitment to the program.

The program is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education for grades 9-12 with state certified instructors. The required daily curriculum includes integrated mathematics, science, language arts, social studies, technology, elective offerings and peer counseling. A "life skills infusion" curriculum includes college and high school academics, life skills training, 12-Step programs, individual and group therapy, vocational training, technology training, arts and recreational activities.

Students have access to a 24/7 wireless technology environment that supports the Right Way educational program and student activities. Right Way also offers video conferencing capabilities to accommodate student-parent communication and visitation through high speed internet.

Co-founders Charles Powell and Dr. Stephen K. Valle, Sc. D., MBA, have developed the program to incorporate a focus on self-conflict within an individual that confronts and resolves substance abuse, despair, anxiety, depression, lack of achievement and social acceptance. Right Way utilizes a modified Therapeutic Community treatment model that integrates the core elements of the traditional therapeutic community model, 12-Step self help philosophy, bio-psycho-social-spiritual emphasis of traditional chemical dependency programs, cognitive/ behavioral change strategies and the principles of Accountability Training®, developed by Dr. Valle.
