With a safe and fun home environment and a balance of structure and love, girls can learn to succeed in the areas of self-discovery, academics, emotional health, family relationships, and social relationships.

The therapeutic program at Maple Lake academy consists of structured individual, group, family and experiential therapies. Each student at Maple Lake receives a minimum of 20 hours of therapy each week. This allows the students the opportunity to work through personal and family struggles and gives the optimum opportunity to learn life skills in a consistent and individualized manner.

Throughout the therapeutic process, Maple Lake Academy therapists customize the treatment plan to fit each girl's specific needs. Without specific level systems and approaches, Maple Lake Academy monitors progress individually and focuses on strengths and successes. This builds self-esteem and allows the girls the opportunity to be a part of their progress, rather than just receiving feedback and being placed in levels with others.

# Each student has the right to an excellent education designed to meet the needs of her specific learning challenges.

# Each student with learning differences must be given the opportunity to discover her unique talents and gifts.

# Each student has the right to gain an understanding of her particular learning differences and the strategies that will help her be successful in the future.

# Family support and involvement is an integral part of the overall success for students with learning disabilities.

All people involved in the process of growth - the student, parents, teachers, therapists and staff must be willing to use their creativity and desire for knowledge to help the student embrace life and learning, one success at a time.
