Therapeutic boarding school

n.noun

Therapeutic boarding schools are a specialized boarding school that assist troubled teens in overcoming their behavioral issues through therapeutic means. Therapeutic boarding schools are not only a therapeutic treatment program. These specialized facilities also offer an accredited educational high school curriculum supervised and taught by a professional educational staff.

Therapeutic boarding schools for troubled teens, much like a regular boarding school, require students to live on campus for a duration of 9- 12 months out of the year. However, unlike traditional boarding schools, therapeutic boarding schools offer therapeutic and behavioral treatment in order to assist troubled teens in restoring their promising potential. As of 2005, the United states reportedly had 140 therapeutic boarding schools. As of today, there are close to 300.
