Improving the lives of behaviorally challenged adolescent males.
Nestled in the Adirondack Mountains of Lake Placid, New York, Mountain Lake Children’s Residence, Inc. and the Mountain Lake Academy offer exceptional educational and treatment programs tailored to support the typical development of adolescent males, ages 12-21. Students come to us with a history of significant failures in school and at home, including school truancy, curfew violations, alcohol and substance abuse, anger management problems, and difficulty in relationships with parents and other authority figures.
Here at Mountain Lake, we do whatever it takes to help these young men turn their lives around. Through individualized educational, residential, adventured-based and therapeutic programs, the professional educators, clinicians and residential counselors at Mountain Lake work with students to foster better lifestyle choices, academic achievement, character building and higher self-esteem. Graduates of our program have gone on to lead more fulfilling and self directed lives.
