Quick Facts about Campus Life

Our on-campus school provides a positive learning environment for girls who struggle in most academic settings. The E-Nini-Hassee Outdoor Therapeutic School is nationally accredited through AdvancED/Southern Association of Colleges and Schools with state-certified teachers.











We serve girls in grades 6–12, and our curriculum is aligned with all state and national Department of Education guidelines. Course credits are fully transferable, and students can receive their high school diploma upon successful completion of coursework.

All of our students gain the skills and knowledge found in a college ready diploma course of study, including English, math, history, science, social studies, health, physical education and the arts.

 

Course objectives are taught through thematic instruction with an emphasis on experiential learning. Small 10:1 student/teacher ratios encourage students to progress at their own rate. Integrated into the curriculum are other experiential activities for academic growth, improved self-concept, spiritual awareness and an understanding of the need for service to the community

One of the Nation’s Leading Residential Alternative Schools for Girls

For 50 years, Eckerd Connects E-Nini-Hassee has specialized in helping girls 12- 18 reach their full potential and prepare them for future success as young women. We are a fully licensed substance abuse treatment program and an accredited residential alternative school that is a highly effective alternative to traditional boarding schools and education programs for troubled and at-risk girls. In a safe and holistic environment emphasizing mind, body and spirit, our outdoor therapeutic school approach combines:

  • individualized, assessment-driven academics

  • individual, group and family counseling

  • high-interest outdoor adventure activities

Not only do we help girls achieve more than they thought possible academically, we also help them reconnect with themselves and their families, and gain self-esteem, leadership and problem solving skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
