White River academy is a residential treatment center for young men with an academic structure in Delta, Utah, which borders the great Basin area. We combine cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy with positive peer culture, creating a therapeutic program which facilitates the development of each of our students into the man he has the potential to become.
White River Academy holds a strong bond with the community of Delta and includes student-engineered service projects as an integral part of our program. A customized educational program is designed for each student to help him achieve his academic potential.
This program helps lead troubled boys down the right path toward becoming men of character and integrity. The goal is more than just treatment of a mental, behavioral or substance abuse issue. WRAs goal is personal growth and maturity through treatment, so the young man is prepared to contribute to society.
Annual tuition for White River Academy covers ongoing program costs, including the educational curriculum, therapy and accommodation. Experiential activities such as rock climbing, canoeing and horseback riding are also included.
In addition, there is a one-time enrollment fee for the cost of the uniform and all necessary supplies the student will need over the course of the year. This information will be covered in the detailed packet during the admissions process following enrollment.
Expenses not covered:
Parents are also responsible for any travel costs or medical costs that occur during the youth’s stay at White River Academy. Parents can use normal insurance and co-pays or private pay if they do not have insurance for medical needs which may arise. The possible medical costs include prescriptions, regular visits to the doctor’s office or unforeseen emergencies which may occur during the teen’s stay at WRA. The child’s safety is one of our top priorities at White River Academy and the professional staff will ensure the child is covered in the case of an emergency. It is also required that all students have a physical within 90 days of beginning the program. If a student has not had a recent physical, he can get one after he arrives, but it will still be the parent’s responsibility to pay for it or use insurance.
Financial assistance is available, based upon the financial situation and need of the parents. Please call our Admissions team at 866-520-0905 to further discuss one’s financial situation.
