Residential Treatment Center GraduateOur Academics Program

At Red Rock Canyon School, we believe that real education occurs when one has developed a true love of learning.

We seek to instill this idea in our youth, and stress this concept in every aspect of our academic program. Many youth at Red Rock Canyon School have experienced repeated academic problems during their school years. They have been told they are not capable of academic achievement, or that they are lazy or hopeless.

We help students learn to love learning again.

Red Rock Canyon School promotes the development of a positive self image by providing each youth with opportunities to experience academic success. We accomplish this through an accredited curriculum that focuses on a youth’s strengths and personal learning style.

We offer a variety of remedial processes, as well as credit courses, which are helpful to such youth not only in adding to completion of school requirements, but also in boosting self esteem through achievement of academic goals.

Please send the staff my thanks for their role in Jake’s recovery. He often tells us how much he appreciated the staff for being genuine with him, something he recognized was missing with his “friends” at home.

Dear Red Rock.  Thank you for helping [Jessie] learn to love herself again. The trauma she went through so long ago used to be a recurring nightmare, but now it’s as if it is a long forgotten memory.  She is healthy, happy, and now helps others at her school in group therapy overcome eating disorders and self image problems through their counseling center. You have been a blessing in our lives. Thank you for your help in her recovery.

I was so scared that I was losing my son to a lifestyle that was destroying his life. He went from the loving little boy to someone who hated everything about us in just a matter of months. When we realized he was in serious trouble we needed the kind of help we couldn’t provide at home. Red Rock school led us by the hand through the entire ordeal. Week by week we started to see him returning to his old self, with pride, confidence, and a new outlook on life.

All I can say is “thank you for getting our family back together.” The severity of our sons chemical addictions was tearing us apart. It was a difficult thing to go through, but in the end we’re back together and closer than ever. Thank you.. thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Red Rock Canyon School was the last hope we had for getting real help for our daughter.  We tried counseling, AA/NA, and even a wilderness program, but when things progressed to the point that her behavior was putting her in danger we sought help that could be with her 24×7 while she received professional help.

Ed C. – Des Moines, IA
Red Rock Parent

The program is wonderful, the staff is excellent. The experience of making the decision to send her away was extremely difficult. Once she was gone, I continued to feel the pressure, the questioning, of whether I was doing the right thing for her. But now, nearly a year after she has been home, I know that the experience at Red Rock literally saved her life. She also knows that sending her to Red Rock saved her life.
