When Idaho youth need our help, we assess their challenges, their circumstances, their needs, and their support system in order to find the best path for a promising future.
We begin by identifying the best treatment path based on the child’s need and the family situation and use a unique combination of methods to help each child address their challenges. While we are treating the youth, we work directly with the family so that when they are reunited, the family is better able to communicate and avoid future issues.
About Therapeutic Boarding Schools in Idaho
Idaho Therapeutic Boarding Schools
An alternative or therapeutic boarding school in Idaho must be licensed by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. The Idaho Code outlines the standards for children’s residential care facilities throughout the state. Such standards include outlining intake policies, ensuring the physical care and safety of residents and requiring a criminal history check on all employees, owners and operators.
According to state statute, Idaho private schools within a therapeutic boarding school may seek accreditation, but it is optional. Idaho also has no requirements outlined for registration, licensing or approval. Teachers at the schools must be state certified and all employees must submit to and meet Idaho‘s criminal history check requirements.
