As an Aspergers school for Virginia teens, at Seven Stars we believe that every child that comes to us will grow from our individual approach and therapeutic process. With a combination of wilderness and residential therapies, as well as group and individual sessions with therapists, Virginia teens will improve their social and academic skills, as well as learn completely new, useful skills.
Although located in Utah and not Virginia, we help teens from all over the United States.
Our location provides opportunities for exciting outdoor adventures that are both enjoyable and therapeutic in nature. It can often help for Virginia teens to be far away from home as it allows them to get a new perspective and focus on themselves without distraction.
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 Virginia Teens?
By combining outdoor adventure activities, residential treatment programming, and continuous assessments, Seven Stars helps Virginia teens on the spectrum heal.
Located away from Virginia, Seven Stars helps teens from across the United States. In fact, it can be beneficial to send your teen away from home to receive treatment.
Over the course of their stay at our aspergers school, your teen will receive continuous assessments. Students are assessed in a variety of settings including in school, during adventure outings off campus, and in their day to day interactions with peers and staff members. 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. While on campus, our students are engaged in numerous social and academic activities. We have built a supportive, engaging environment that encourages students to experience growth in their communication and relationship skills. As they build friendships with fellow students, many of whom are facing issues similar to your child’s, your child will learn new ways to perceive the emotions and gestures of those around them and feel more confident in their self expression.
Each week, students spend three days off campus where they take part in adventure activities like canoeing, rock climbing, and hiking that help them break out of their comfort zone.
At the end of programming at Seven Stars, our Aspergers school creates a multidisciplinary report for the parents so they can see how much of a progress their child has made and what to do next.
