BONNERS FERRY, Idaho (March 1, 2005) - Northwest
Academy is pleased to announce that Dan Schaefer has been
appointed to the position of admissions director for Northwest
Academy, a therapeutic boarding school that specializes in
working with 17-year olds at-risk of not graduating from high
school due to emotional and behavioral issues.
Dan has more than 15 years' experience in the fields of education
and outdoor program admissions and recruitment. While serving
as admissions director for two Outward Bound programs (Colorado
Outward Bound School and Thompson Island Outward Bound Education
Center), Dan assisted thousands of families as they sought
appropriate programs for young people. Most recently, Dan
worked directly with students at Principia College, where
he served as a career counselor.
"Dan has been with us now since late January and has
immersed himself in learning everything there is to know about
Northwest Academy. Referring professionals will find him enthusiastic
and capable," said Northwest Academy Director Ruth McKnight.
She added, "I'm looking forward to having him attend
the upcoming IECA conference."
Northwest Academy is a coed residential high school whose
accelerated-academics program is designed exclusively for
17-year-olds with emotional and behavioral difficulties that
are at risk of not completing 11th or 12th grade. This pioneering
educational model consolidates up to two years worth of credits
in just one year and results in a high school diploma while
providing intensive counseling for the student and a strong
healing component for families. Dan can be reached by phone
at (877) 882-0980 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
