Lakeside Academy is a year-round program for boys, ages 13-17, with a history of sexual issues, emotional and behavioral challenges, low self-esteem, academic underachievement, substance abuse, and family conflict.

Lakeside uses a holistic approach in the therapy process including Cognitive Behavioral, Experiential, and Recreational therapy. The treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each individual student. Some of the specialized therapy groups focus on arts and craft therapy, Zen garden experience, physical exercise and sex specific interventions. The therapists are highly experienced through years of national conference trainings and the latest treatment modalities.

The program provides clinical treatment, academic and behavioral services with an ethical approach. Staff promotes social, emotional, and physical development which impacts lifelong learning. The recreational services and personal training offered at Lakeside Academy promote physical health. Students receive personal coaching, team oriented opportunities, individual sporting events, resistance training, core strength classes, yoga, meditation, and weight training programming. The focus is success and personal achievement through an individualized program for all abilities.

Lakeside Academy is housed in a spacious home-like setting to assist boys through issues causing emotional problems for them and their families. Family participation and involvement are essential parts of helping the struggling boys.
