Welcome to Moonridge Academy
Moonridge Academy provides a specialized, unique learning and healing environment for younger girls ages 11-14 that are beginning to experiment with high risk behaviors. These behaviors might include self-harm (often "cutting"), eating disorders, school refusal, peer problems, anger, defiance, sexually acting out or low-level drug or substance abuse. In other instances, a girl may not yet have begun these activities, but because of depression, anxiety or self-esteem issues, is at a high risk to do so. Moonridge Academy uses a variety of therapeutic modalities including play therapy, sand tray therapy, Equine Therapy and DBT to meet the clinical needs of our younger girls. Adventure Therapy is a big part of what we do at Moonridge! Girls and their therapists together hike, camp, ski and mountain bike in the beauty of southern Utah.
