New Vision Wilderness Academy strives to support the academic process of our clients by providing experiential learning that supports the continuation of their education. In addition to our therapeutic objectives, we offer opportunities for continuing education credit hours and academic growth based on the individual needs of each client. The primary goal of New Vision Wilderness is to deeply impact the lives of our clients by therapeutic means. Inherent in the nature of our program is educational growth; therefore we provide the opportunity for clients to receive credits for their academic progress.

At New Vision Wilderness Therapy we concentrate on an academic program in conjunction with immersion therapy to help our clients to continue their formal education.

Clients are automatically enrolled in the New Vision Wilderness Academy. Our clients are enrolled into the Academy because we understand the importance of academic success in their lives. New Vision’s Wisconsin program, is a registered private school with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Through the State of Oregon, New Vision is a licensed outdoor youth program. We support an alternative education that covers a core curriculum. The core curriculum is inquiry based, progressive in nature, and student directed. Courses available are English Language Arts, Environmental Science, Natural Arts, Health, Independent Study through Mastery, and Physical Education. 

The core curriculum is built into the daily programming and structure. There are two scheduled hours per day of traditional academic independent study time. During this hour tutoring support from instructors is available. The selection of each course is based on parent and child preference, as well as individual credit requirements. Your child’s academic challenges are assessed when they enter our program.

Our Wilderness Teachers create an Education Plan while your child is with New Vision. With our guidance you will choose the best educational track for your child. Official transcripts, course descriptions, and community service documentation will be included in your childs discharge paperwork.

“At New Vision I built deep relationships, which Ive never had in my life. I was able to share life changing experiences; I never knew what it felt like to have such support. It feels good to look deeper and have realizations, before moving forward and growing.”  -P. (client,age 16)
