Newport Academy
Therapeutic Day School Locations

Newport Academy’s Therapeutic Day School programs offer a comprehensive and nurturing environment for students to reach their full academic potential, while continuing to focus on their recovery. Teens are able to heal in mind, body, and spirit while gaining high school diplomas or college credit and setting attainable goals for the future.

Newport Academy Day Schools integrate an accredited individually tailored academic track, with dedicated therapeutic and experiential curriculum. The approach at our therapeutic schools for teenagers teach students and families to embrace and learn from setbacks, boost resilience and tenacity, strengthen critical thinking, foster healthy and supportive relationships with peers and staff, and engage in both mastery and inquiry-based learning.

“Kids need a place that’s going to allow them to be who they truly are. At our Day Schools, we meet them where they are. We accept and love them for who they are. They gain control of their own destiny, regain a sense of power, and recover their bright shining spirits. Our teens truly navigate what it takes to get from fear to love.”

–  Jamison Monroe, Founder and CEO of Newport Academy
