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.
The First Name in Second Chances
Through a safe, nurturing environment, equip girls to navigate life's future successes and challenges.
That young people have an opportunity to explore and develop spiritually, cognitively, emotionally, and physically while engaging in activities that require skills of self-control and self-reflection with empathetic understanding is essential to the business of E-Nini-Hassee. Accessing student learning styles to build motivation to learn, establish trusting relationships within an educational arena, and re-instilling secondary and post-secondary placement as a worthy and viable option for the girls in our care is essential to our practice.
