Our Philosophy

Over the years, we have developed a constantly evolving philosophy based on the specific needs of our students.

Our philosophy towards helping teen girls and assigned female at birth and their families includes five key components. These components are:

    1. Focus on people: Unlike many therapeutic boarding schools, Solstice is highly individualized. We focus on providing the best therapeutic care possible for each student. We believe that people more than programs create a lasting impact.
    2. Family focused programming: At the heart of our program, we want families to come together and reconnect. Your connection with your child is one of the strongest, most important relationships they will have. We work closely with families to make this relationship strong and trusting.
    3. Internal change: At Solstice, teen girls and assigned female at birth are encouraged to explore what matters to them. Rather than focusing on compliance and external changes, we help girls and assigned female at birth create lasting change from the inside out.
    4. Mind-body connection: Our holistic approach to therapy focuses on treating the entire individual rather than just €œproblem areas€. The problem behaviors are most often symptoms of more significant core issues. The primary goal of our therapy for girls and assigned female at birth is to access those core issues so genuine healing can occur.
    5. Girls-only approach: We focus specifically on females and assigned female at birth between the ages of 14 and 18. Our therapeutic and academic approaches are tailored to the specific developmental needs of this age and gender group.

We treat the whole individual in order for genuine, lasting healing to take place. A €œmind body philosophy€ is an important aspect of our approach. A large body of research supports the idea that our mental and physical health are deeply intertwined. Because of this, we address all areas of health – the physical, emotional, and relational health of our students.
