The Leading Outdoor Therapeutic School
for Girls in the Nation

Eckerd Connects E-Nini-Hassee is more than a residential treatment program for girls; It’s also more than a boarding school or alternative school for girls. As an outdoor therapeutic school, it’s all of these — and so much more. Founded in 1969, E-Nini-Hassee is the most established and trusted outdoor therapeutic school for girls 12-18 in the southeastern United States.
