Why We Are Here
If you are reading this, our hearts go out to you. It is getting harder to raise a family in the midst of a chaotic and ever changing world. We see that happening and know that you are experiencing it first hand in your own home right now. Families like yours inspired us to create Ozark Trails Academy, we believe in you and created a safe relationship-based and family-oriented residential treatment center for troubled teens to help create the growth, change, and success you are looking for regardless of the challenges you currently face. We firmly believe that in order for real lasting change to occur, it has to come from the heart. Our whole treatment program and school is designed around this concept.

Couldn’t Be In a Better Place
Hidden deep in the hills of Southern Missouri on a beautiful 750-acre ranch surrounded by thousands of acres of the Mark Twain national forest, we have the luxury of being in an environment that lets youth completely disconnect from the outside vices of the world. The nature setting allows students to commit their full attention to themselves, their individualized treatment, the peer dynamics at Ozark Trails, and their families.
We Want to Help Bring Back Your Sanity And Your Troubled Teen
With an unlimited access to spring rivers, caves, hiking, equine, and biking trails, we have the perfect balance of nature, inclusive of a large, comfortable facility to let our students feel safe in a home environment. All of the environmental components at Ozark Trails Academy allow for an intensive clinical experience to occur while methodically, comprehensively and thoroughly addressing each student’s treatment needs.
