About Mount Prospect Academy
The mission of Mount Prospect Academy is to provide a caring safe therapeutic environment where students have the opportunity to grow and acquire the skills they need to reach their educational and social potential. We aim to develop trusting relationships with students and facilitate experiences that promote their ability to self-regulate; manage thoughts and feelings; and develop feelings of safety, confidence, and competency.
To this end, Mount Prospect Academy provides a trauma informed continuum of care inclusive of Enhanced Residential Treatment, Crisis Stabilization, Comprehensive Assessment and Short-term Treatment, Subacute Programming, Academic programming, Adventure Based Programming and Community-based Programming throughout New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine. We offer accredited academic day programs serving students 220 days a year through differentiated instruction and engaging extended learning opportunities. Our intensive residential and subacute programs operate year-round and provide substantive support for families and caregivers. MPA currently serves approximately 190 intensive residential students whose ages range from 11-21 and over 500 community-based families annually.
