WayPoint Academy is a specialized boarding school of 36 coed students and is dually-licensed as an independent school and residential treatment center. We provide clinical treatment and academic support to adolescents ages 13-18 who struggle with the debilitating effects of anxiety and OCD. Our Mindful Completion Model is a unique and innovative approach designed to address anxiety, mood, executive functioning, learning, and healthy identity development. WayPoint’s holistic model increases students’ distress tolerance and resiliency by identifying and addressing factors that fuel anxiety. We provide the necessary skills, tools, and practice for lifestyles no longer driven by fear and avoidance.
WayPoint’s multi-disciplinary team understands that the entire family is affected by a suffering child. Thus, strategic family involvement is paramount in returning students to healthy and productive lives.
Our students benefit from a fully-accredited high school curriculum, and our certified teachers are specifically trained to motivate each student in completing tasks and in reaching academic potential. The campus is located in one of Utah’s most picturesque settings and offers skiing, snowboarding, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and additional recreational opportunities.
