About life quest
Life Quest Girls Academy is a transitional boarding school for girls ages 12-18. We help teenage girls, some who have completed a therapeutic program, continue therapy while pursuing their educational and self-improvement goals in a safe, loving, home-like environment. We don’t just educate, we instill a life-long love of learning through individualized programs of study to help our students transition successfully into adulthood.
Life Quest Girls Academy offers a safe haven for girls who are in need of ongoing care and education after attending a more intense therapeutic program. Through the life-changing work at our own therapeutic boarding school, Re-Creation Retreat, we have learned that some students struggle when returning home. They need a transitional program and a place to finish up their education without returning to bad influences in their home town. Teenage girls completing a therapeutic program may struggle again with some of the same issues they had before due to returning to:
- Digital and social media
- Loss of educational structure & accountability
- Reuniting with old negative peers
- Access to old self-destructive triggers
- Reigniting explosive relationship patterns
- Loss of life compass, purpose and meaning
By focusing on a curriculum geared for today’s rapidly changing world, middle school and high school girls at Life Quest discover the strength to build a future rather than be trapped in the struggles of the past. This means helping the girls in our program understand and own the consequences of their decisions. We structure our program to help our students build a foundation of disciplined living, and use this foundation to help young women reach their dreams.
Life Quest Girls Academy is the answer for girls and families who are dealing with a turbulent transition back to normal life for their teenage daughter after a residential treatment center or therapeutic boarding school. No matter what her educational goals are, we create an individualized, hands-on program to help each of our students drive toward that goal.
About the Campus
Our setting in the picturesque beauty of Southern Utah allows opportunities for contemplation, focus and also inspiration in the midst of awe-inspiring natural wonders. This setting is a great asset to our hands-on curriculum in photography and other visual arts, and plays a role in another critical component of our program — the importance of physical fitness.
Here at Life Quest, we teach the importance of self-respect, and we believe a pillar of this respect is how we treat our bodies. In a world filled with damaging influences in how we think about beauty and fitness, we guide the young women in our program toward a positive understanding of health and fitness.
