Lava Heights Academy is an evidence-based residential treatment center for troubled teens, both boys and girls ages 12 to 18, who are struggling with personal identity issues that are causing significant problems in other areas of their lives. Lava Heights Academy is exclusively designed and built to assist troubled teenagers in a therapeutic journey to self-discovery and complete healing. At Lava Heights Academy "the arts" are more than just an extra-curricular activity
they are integrated into everything we do - academics, therapy, social development, and recreational activities.
Integrated arts are the core of our therapeutic program. Lava Heights Academy is a place where true commitment and love for the arts is evident in everything we do. Moreover, at Lava Heights our approach to residential treatment is based on care, concern, and the safety of each individual. This includes environmental safety, which means every student feels safe because they have the freedom to express themselves in appropriate ways.
Our professional staff are trained in Positive Peer Culture and teach Principle-based Living Skills. The staff at Lava Heights are positive role models (life coaches), teaching and encouraging pro-social behaviors through integrated arts. 24 hour supervision and professional care is provided in all aspects of our program.
