Enrolling our daughter at Clearview was one of the best decisions that our family has ever made. She dealt with depression and anxiety since she was a small child. We spent a great deal of time and energy going from doctor to doctor trying one medication after another without any results to point to other than major side effects. Before we arrived at Clearview, Mary, the owner, recommended we get my daughter tested at the Amen Clinic. They provide a psych test plus a brain scan. This testing had a profound impact on her ability to get off the majority of these meds within a year. Today, she is only on one of her medications and she is managing it on her own. Through individual, group, and family therapy, my daughter started to address some very real issues that were creating most of her self limiting beliefs. We were not aware of a trauma that she had experienced as a young child. This realization, and the work we did around it, allowed us to focus on the real issue at hand rather than using medications to simply treat her symptoms. Clearview got to the root of my daughter's secrets and proved the wisdom that we are only as sick as our secrets. They gave her the tools that she needed to let her past go and find a way forward to keeping it simple and just focusing on doing the next right thing. After she graduated from Clearview, she returned home and is now preparing to start her Freshman year at a nearby university. No parent could hope for more for their child.

My daughter went to Clearview for almost 17 months. During that time, I have learned more than I imagined about emotional growth, about me and my parenting and what I bring to the table than I ever imagined. This decision for my wife and I was very difficult, but sitting on the other side of it, I am full of gratitude for the staff at Clearview. I could tell many stories about staff going the extra mile to make my daughter know she is loved and valued. The staff here put in endless hours of ups and downs, and yet they show up time and again with love over fear in their heart to do it all over again the next day. Sound familiar? Sort of like being a parent. Clearview is not perfect. No school is at any level of care. If you are looking at a private boarding school for your daughter, then the critical components you are looking for are safety, an experienced therapeutic team, and a loving environment. In my experience, Clearview is one of the best at these three things. In a year and a half, my daughter has gone from self destructive behavior and not wanting any relationship with my wife and I, to an understanding of who she is, an appreciation for the change she has gone through, and to hope for her future, and a desire for that future to include us (rather than excluding us). She has grown and gained life experiences that have saved and will serve her life. We got our daughter back.

Clearview was the best choice I could have made for my teenage daughter. She was on a destructive path. Destructive for her and destructive for the rest of us. Clearview provides a caring and structured environment that my daughter needed to connect to. The academic program is individualized and is delivering results as she has done a lot of credit recovery while she has been there and is back on track and slightly ahead of pace (keeping my fingers crossed). I was amazed and impressed by the campus. Small and quiet at the base of a mountain in Montana with trees, deer and river streams all around it. It was ideal for the type of unplugged environment that I wanted to take my daughter to to get her a fresh start. From Philadelphia to Montana, what a change for her and exactly what she needed. I can say without a doubt that the students are provided with excellent care by a Christian staff who truly wants to see our daughter cross over to a life of purpose and clarity. My daughter has been there almost 16 months now and the change has been significant. I truly thank God every night that she is at Clearview and know that it was the best decision I could have ever made to benefit my daughter and my family to place us on the right path. Do you know what the difference was? I was as much about my daughter seeing me doing my own work as it was for her to be doing her own work. Clearview asks a lot of us in this process. A lot in the form of engagement and trust. They are very direct about doing my own work. Doing my own work meant bringing vulnerability to the weekly family therapy call. It means coming to every family workshop they offered (we have been to three so far). It means dropping everything when they invited me to a therapeutic river rafting trip down the Salmon river for my daughter and I to work on us. Clearview holds a very high standard and we are getting the results we never thought possible. My daughter is more open than she has ever been. Open about her drug use and her boundary issues. This a created a way forward. She is on the student leadership team now and we are seeing her build momentum towards her program graduation. We made the right choice with Clearview.

I am sure reading these reviews can be a bit confusing. Some reviews are 5 and others are an 1. Please remember if your considering a program like this most families come in hurting, scared, angry, and sad. Something has broken down that has lead them to where they are at currently. Also, some girls leave before graduation and miss the last transformational 6 months of the program. My experience is graduation usually means transformation. I am a father of a graduate. This program is about restoration - of the individual and family. Sending our daughter to a program was the hardest decisions of my life, but it was one of the best decisions we’ve ever done. This is not a place you send your daughter and they “fix” her. It will take individual ownership, time, effort, heart, trust, and repentance from the parents as well as your daughter. You will be asked to trust the process many times that is extremely hard but a gift. A significant amount of the success of the program is each family member owning their part in healing. You get out what you put in. I was a good father but still had a lot to own. My daughter had to do the same. She had to own what lead her to Clearview. The staff’s skill to work with girls is excellent. They’ve seen most “unique” cases. Clearview wants to see a girl’s heart change. When the heart and belief change that leads to new choices and actions. Also the staff will love your girl, they are trustworthy, and this is more than a job to them. I am confident, they will skillfully love her. I visited Clearview and another school before we sent our daughter there and at Clearview the staff’s love and skill put my anxiety at ease. There is weekly equine, individual, and family therapy, daily group therapy, quarterly parental workshops, and home visits. There is both time and space to rebuild what has been broken. If a parent is considering this option I imagine most other options have been exhausted. Clearview equipped me to rebuild my relationship with my daughter, helped her redirect her life. We have hope for the future and God has healed our family. It was well worth the investment in her and our family.

Sent my daughter here after struggling for years at home. She spend 15 months here. Learning who she was and who she wasn't. And in the middle of the intense therapy, workshops, and schoolwork, she made lifelong friends, learned to ski, ride horses, and appreciate the beauty of God's creation (camping, whitewater rafting, etc.). The therapists and staff truly cared for her (and her family), and I know she will be back to visit. They have prepared her for the next stage of her life, and we are so excited to see what her future holds now! Thank you to all the staff at Clearview! Highly recommend and am willing to talk to future parents about it!
