Liahona Academy Boarding Schools for Teenaged Boys

Liahona Academy

As parents, realizing that something must be

done to change your teen’s present course becomes more

and more crucial. In many instances, intervention in a controlled

environment becomes essential. Without a controlled environment,

any attempts to intervene become disregarded by the influences

of outside sources.


Liahona Academy’s accredited academics are approved

by the State of Utah Board of Education and based

upon college bound curriculum, encouraging boys to further

their education after their graduation or whenever they complete

the program.

Our curriculum is designed to allow the students

to advance at their own pace, neither hindering their development

nor allowing them to advance before they are ready.

Each course is taught by certified teachers. Every student

will be taught courses required to receive the credits they

need to earn a high school diploma.


Therapy is an effective element that we utilize to accomplish

our overall design to help students build inner strengths,

overcome emotional and behavioral problems and develop good

communication and problem solving skills.

Individual Therapy is provided to help the

boys recognize greater insight into their behavior and give

them an opportunity to establish a relationship of trust with

their counselor. In this private setting, boys are able to

discuss issues that may be too sensitive for them to reveal

to others in a group setting.

Therapy is provided by a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW)

that deals specifically with adolescents specializing in issues

such as attention disorders, behavioral and emotional issues,

substance abuse issues, depression, and addictive behaviors.

Group Therapy includes leadership training

groups, special interest groups, anger management, drug abuse

treatment, educational lectures, victim awareness groups,

and positive peer groups. A licensed substance abuse counselor

(LSAC) conducts drug abuse treatment seminars.


Liahona Academy students will participate in many recreational

activities such as water skiing, swimming, bowling, basketball,

football, skiing, hiking, softball, weightlifting, camping,

movies, and many other activities according to their eligibility.

The boys will learn proper exercise and eating routines from

our fitness instructors. Our success rate has shown that as

they begin to see results in the way they look and feel, students

will find positive alternatives to their negative behaviors.

As they participate in activities, they begin to be more self-aware.

This self-awareness leads the boys to develop better coping

let time go by. Letting time go by is letting the addiction

and behavior get worse. Allow the structure of Liahona Academy
