Faced with challenging situations, students will uncover the best version of themselves.

What Can Massachusetts Teens Expect from An Aspergers School?
Massachusetts teens on the autism spectrum struggling with emotional and behavioral challenges could benefit from attending an Aspergers school that will provide everything he or she needs to reach their fullest potential.
Seven Stars is based in Utah, but we help teens across the U.S. Many parents find that sending their child away from home to receive treatment can promote personal growth.
We’ve joined various types of therapy together into one program to better serve the complex needs of each teen.
Knowing exactly where our students are, both emotionally and physically at arrival, helps us determine the best path forward. This way, we can craft a personalized curriculum that fits the individual’s needs. For teens that need some time to settle, we provide a period of stabilization that can last a couple of weeks.
Massachusetts teens will participate in trips to national parks and other scenic locations near our Aspergers school, as we find a change of scenery often helps encourage students to get out of their comfort zone.
Teens will be a part of both traditional, on-campus therapy and experiential, adventure activities throughout their journey with us. On campus, Massachusetts teens attend classes and interact with their peers. We use our initial assessment to determine how we should challenge the students to best help them reach their full potential.
