Welcome To Clarinda Academy

Established in 1992, Clarinda Academy is a residential foster care facility that provides residential treatment to at-risk and delinquent male and female youth from several states. Clarinda offers long-term residential treatment services for more than 250 young people. Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of interscholastic sports and fine arts programs, as well as vocational training. Combining experienced staff and time-tested programs, Clarinda is uniquely positioned to serve the youth population who qualify for entry.

Clarinda is proud of its array of gender-specific services for today's at-risk youth. We believe that intensely scheduled programming, skill-building activities, and carefully guided extra-curricular opportunities, along with appropriate treatment programs administered by skilled and caring professionals, create benefits for our students that have the potential to impart life-long redirection. Throughout a student's stay at the Academy, he or she is challenged to analyze failures and experience success in nearly every area of life.

Mission Statement

The Clarinda Academy exists to serve the unique academic, physical, social, emotional and behavioral needs of our students, who are in a critical period of their lives. We are committed to creating and maintaining a safe, trusting, and caring environment that opens the door for life-changing opportunities. All aspects of our school are student centered and designed to accommodate individual learning styles so that all may experience success.
