At the Walden Street School an exceptional education and specialized trauma informed treatment services go hand in hand. As part of the fully accredited Meadowridge family of schools, Walden provides individualized treatment services to young women between the ages of 12 and 22.
Many of our students come to us because they are struggling in traditional school settings due to issues such as past trauma, depression, anxiety, and mood disorders. Our supportive program allows students to continue their education in a safe, secure and supportive environment in which they can learn and grow.
The Walden Street School uses state of the art trauma specific models of treatment including the unique ARC treatment methodology, and works to ensure this treatment model is pervasive throughout all aspects of programming. Developed through the cutting edge work of Dr. Bessel van der Kolk and his colleagues at the Trauma Center at JRI these intensive, individualized treatment interventions feature an array of services designed with a single goal in mind: to prepare our students for a strong, healthy future.
