Chrysalis Therapeutic Boarding School

A well-rounded program leads to a well-rounded individual.

What Makes Chrysalis Unique?

Chrysalis Therapeutic Boarding School offers a nurturing and supportive environment, with the clinical sophistication of a residential treatment center. Our program fosters healthy identity development, self confidence and a sense of belonging. The beautiful campus is intentionally located in northwest Montana, where the landscape offers year-round recreation for our robust adventure therapy program. The tranquility of living on a lake in the midst of the Rockies creates a peaceful environment for healing and growth. Students are 13-18 years of age, and attend the school for one year or more. Family involvement is imperative, and a crucial component to the program. Students live family style in one of three homes, where they are encouraged to build on personal strengths while they examine and challenge old patterns that have prevented growth.

Family-Style Living

Students live in houses rather than dorms, and meals are family-style around the table. Roommates provide a cozy setting for friendships and growth to take place. Girls work together to decorate and customize their room.

International Trips

Chrysalis is the only residential treatment program that guarantees each student one international trip (at no extra cost!). Exposure to other cultures and service is a vital part of our modality. We even invite a family member to join, as appropriate and possible.


Adventure Therapy

Our location is intentional, and allows students to recreate year-round in this beautiful landscape. Each season brings new activities along with the opportunity for healthy risks and skill development. Whether we are hiking, biking, skiing or rock climbing, these actives go beyond recreation, and organically create space for therapeutic growth.
