Boulder Creek Academy


Boulder Creek Academy was founded in 1993 to serve troubled teens whose needs were not being met in traditional school due to academic, behavioral and clinical challenges.

We are a therapeutic boarding school with a state-approved special education program. Our 180-acre campus is located at the base of the Cabinet Mountains in north Idaho. We serve students from across the United States and internationally.

Our mission is to assist students and families with personal growth, relationships, and lifelong learning. Students benefit from an evidence-based curriculum combining academic and therapeutic learning with adventure therapy, leadership, and service opportunities. Our unique program allows boys and girls to experience school and a social life through co-ed and same-sex activities.

At Boulder Creek Academy, your child learns to make the most of their strengths, develops coping tools, gains confidence and self-esteem and begins see the unlimited possibilities the future holds.

Parents benefit from our family reunification program through weekly family therapy, parent workshops, and adventure therapy experiences.

We are licensed by the Idaho State Department of Health and Welfare and our academic program is accredited by AdvancED. We do not discriminate on religion, race, creed, national origin, ethnic background, sexual orientation or cultural differences.
