Steven Stars is an autism boarding school that helps Massachusetts teens with emotional, social, and academic difficulties. Unlike any other autism boarding schools that support Massachusetts teens, Seven Stars has a comprehensive therapeutic program as well as an accredited educational program. Seven Stars has an innovative approach to working with teens on the spectrum, blending residential treatment services, adventure programming, and diagnostic services, all with a positive psychology philosophy.
Our top autism boarding school is not located in Massachusetts, and instead is in Utah. Though we are in Utah, we help teens and families from all over. Removing teens from Massachusetts that are on the spectrum from their routines allows for a natural break in the day-to-day habits that teens on the spectrum can get stuck in. And though some parents may be reluctant to take teens out of their routines, this will help them mature and grow in the long run. Breaking current routines can lead to healthier habits in the future.
At our premier autism boarding school for teens from Massachusetts, we work with teens on the spectrum to help them achieve their goals. Throughout our programming, students learn to be:
– Self Determined: Teens define their own version of success and how to go after it.
– Self Directed: Adolescents understand what is important to them and how to meet these needs.
– Self-Confidence: Teens develop the ability to trust themselves and their feelings.
– Self Awareness: Adolescents develop a conscious understanding of themselves.

During off-campus adventure programming, students experience fun and exciting activities designed to be both therapeutic and academic in nature. Students learn from their environment while participating in activities such as skiing, backpacking, and rock climbing.
Therapeutic programming at Seven Stars takes place on and off campus where students alternate between adventure outings and residential treatment. The residential treatment component of our program is on-campus and has individual therapy, academic curriculum, and student life programming. During their time on campus, we focus on rebuilding the confidence of students within a classroom setting and creating opportunities for the improvement of social skills.
Throughout a student’s journey at Seven Stars, students receive a variety of assessments which highlight the strengths of students, rather than challenges. Some of the assessments that we use include a psychiatric assessment, social skills observations and interventions, a diet/health assessment, and also a multidisciplinary assessment.
