As an Aspergers school for South Carolina teens, at Seven Stars we believe that every child that comes to us will benefit from our therapy and individual approach. With a combination of wilderness and residential therapies, as well as group and individual sessions with therapists, South Carolina teens will improve their social and academic skills, as well as learn completely new, useful skills.
Although located in Utah and not South Carolina, we help teens from all over the United States.
Our location makes it possible to experience exciting outdoor adventures that are enjoyable and better yet, therapeutic in nature. Sometimes, being far away from home can help South Carolina teens get a new perspective and allow them to focus on themselves.
We admit boys and girls, ages 13-17, and develop an individual treatment for each of our students. Our students suffer from a variety of different neurodevelopmental disorders and are at various social and academic levels, so the individual approach is the only way to go.
Our comprehensive assessment of each of our students allows us to establish and focus on their strengths, which will allow them to gain more confidence and overcome their weaknesses.

What Can An Aspergers School Offer South Carolina Teens?
Seven Stars, an Aspergers school for teens ages 13-17, utilizes a combination of assessments, adventure based activities, and community-based residential treatment programming to help teens on the spectrum heal.
Located away from South Carolina, Seven Stars helps teens from across the United States. For many parents it can be helpful to send your child away from their home state to get the treatment they need.
Throughout their time at Seven Stars, South Carolina teens are continuously assessed. We are able to create a comprehensive evaluation of your child’s needs because they are assessed in a number of settings and environments including during adventure outings, socializing with peers on campus, and during therapy sessions. From the assessments, our team can help you better understand the challenges that your child is facing and determine treatment options moving forward.
Each week, students spend time on campus where they take part in academic and therapeutic programming, and off campus exploring the outdoors and learning new adventure activities. On campus, students take part in academic programming through online classrooms and engage in social activities with their peers. The goal here is to realize that with a different perception of their surroundings and other people, South Carolina teens need to develop a different approach to deal with everyday situations and to successfully communicate with the people around them. By interacting with other students dealing with similar challenges, and through individual and group therapy, our students learn how to express themselves and be more aware of other people’s emotions.
Three days each week, students take part in off campus adventure activities where they learn new exciting skills and gain confidence in themselves.
As programming reaches its end, our Aspergers school finalizes a multidisciplinary report that helps you better understand the growth your child has experienced and plans for next steps in treatment.
