We Do "Whatever It Takes" To Help Youth Succeed

The Mountain Lake Academy Experience

Located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, Mountain Lake Academy offers students ages 12 to 21 the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential by enhancing four areas of growth: intellectual, physical, emotional and social.

Our holistic, family-oriented approach combines an experiential based program with an outstanding educational curriculum to deliver proven results. Professional educators, clinicians, and residential counselors work as a team to assist young men in taking control of their lives. A multi-disciplinary approach seamlessly integrates academics, sports, recreation, clinical services, and residential life, delivered in a highly structured, yet nurturing environment.

A healthy lifestyle is integral to our program. Students receive wholesome and nutritional meals, as well as a wide variety of sports and recreational activities such as hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, and team sports. The campus also features a full-sized indoor gymnasium and a state-of-the-art high and low ropes course erected in 2018. Additionally, Mountain Lake Academy students have access to numerous cultural and recreational activities available throughout the Lake Placid region.
