Information and Tours

Glenholme is a therapeutic boarding school that serves students, ages 10-21, with social, emotional and academic needs. It is a co-educational, year-round program with rolling admissions. Although students can enroll at any time of the year, most students enter school either at the beginning of the school year in September or after the holiday break in January.

Although the majority of students are residential, Glenholme will consider students as a day placement. The school also offers a seven-week summer program that runs from early July to late August.

Parents and legal guardians are welcome to call Admissions to find out more about Glenholme’s academic and therapeutic program. Campus tours can also be scheduled at that time. It is suggested that parents come by themselves initially so they are able to talk more freely with Admissions about the prospective student.

Inquiries are also welcome from clinicians, educational consultants, family friends, hospitals, residential treatment centers and Wilderness programs.
