Student Life

A balanced student life is important for each adolescent that attends our school. We provide a nurturing and supportive environment at Boulder Creek Academy. Your son or daughter will quickly come to feel like our campus is their home away from home. Upon enrollment, your child will be introduced to a student who will be their mentor and introduce them to other students and staff, show them around campus, help familiarize your child with our campus agreements, and answer any and all questions.

What to Expect

Your child’s day will be highly structured. Your child will be busy with academic work, therapy, participating in physical education activities, outdoor activities and recreation.

Our staff is actively involved in the daily life of students. They can be found playing chess with a group of students by the fireplace, involved in a game of flag football, taking a moment to process an issue that may have arisen for a student, or sharing a meal with students.

Your child will reside in a comfortable and homey dorm along with other like-gender students. He or she will be assigned a bunk bed and their own closet space and dresser to house their belongings. The bathrooms have numerous shower stalls, sinks, mirrors and toilets to accommodate students.

During the week your child will focus on academic study, as well as, participating in therapy, physical education and recreational programming. Please see our daily schedule for more details. On weekends, students have the opportunity to sleep in and enjoy brunch. The day is filled with on-and off-campus activities, community service projects, chores, and social time.
