Program Description

Wellspring Academy is the first comprehensive solution for teens struggling with their weight. Many families with overweight children and teens have sent their children to summer weight loss camps. Wellspring Academy is a year-round weight loss program that is a college preparatory school for grades 8-12 and also includes 2 college programs. So you don’t need to wait until next summer to start your child down the path to a healthier and better life.

A minimum of 4 months enrollment is required, but a semester (four months) is recommended. By attending the Academy for a semester, students will be able to:

  • Achieve immediate and dramatic weight loss from thorough Diet and Activity Management.
  • Undergo behavioral change through intensive cognitive-behavioral therapy, retraining the brain to make better decisions with regard to diet and physical activity as well as addressing other behavioral issues that may be causing (or resulting from) the weight. This will allow students to sustain and continue the weight loss after returning home.
  • Accelerate academically through a rigorous, individualized educational program, fueled by the increase in energy and self-esteem that results from the weight loss and therapeutic programs. As our motto Mens et Salvere (mind and health) indicates, we believe the two go hand-in-hand.

After a semester at the Academy, students return to school ahead of where they otherwise would have been.  The Clinical Director and the Members of the Advisory Board of Healthy Living Academies are among the world’s leading experts in weight loss and the weight loss and control strategies employed at Wellspring Academy have been proven to be effective by research published in top scientific journals.
