Welcome to Waterfall Canyon Academy, a clinically sophisticated therapeutic program, offering services to adolescents and young adults with cognitive, social, emotional and behavioral struggles. We are located in the historic city of Ogden, Utah and function as a licensed residential treatment center for adolescent males/females and as an independent living program for young adult males. We also have a small private school, OakGrove School, which is licensed and accredited through the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. The ownership and administrative team at Waterfall Canyon Academy have provided residential care and therapy services to local Utah youth and their families since 1996. We have been serving students nationally since 2006 and are now accepting international students.
We at Waterfall Canyon certainly understand how a troubled adolescent can disrupt the family system. The emotional turmoil and physical exhaustion is often overwhelming for all of our families. However, we have been able to witness the joy and peace that comes when our students work through their struggles and begin to lead healthy, independent and productive lives. That is why each student that attends Waterfall Canyon will experience our multi-disciplinary team approach. Every student will receive an individualized treatment plan allowing them to progress at a rate that is appropriate for his/her needs.
Our program is designed to provide a warm and nurturing environment. We are nestled in the community which allows our students to feel more "at home" and for us to take advantage of all that our community has to offer. We focus a great deal on daily living skills as well as social skills. Our setting is perfect for our students to participate in activities such as: swimming, skiing, boating, hiking, horseback riding and fishing. We keep very busy and are never bored at Waterfall Canyon!
All of our programs highly encourage families to take advantage of all the opportunities available along side their son/daughter’s journey. Students receive individual, group and family therapy in conjunction with their academics. Having our own school allows us to give each student highly individualized attention and instruction. This setting allows our students to finally begin to feel successful in the academic environment.
