A NJ Therapeutic High School helping students with their emotional and educational needs

New Alliance Academy is a high school for teenagers who experience acute psychological distress. We provide a full educational continuum that addresses the emotional and academic needs of students in a day school setting. New Alliance Academy integrates educational and ancillary therapeutic services in one location which are expertly provided to help the adolescent return to a least restrictive school setting as soon as possible. Our students gain a deeper understanding of themselves while they receive the tools to move forward in their education and in life. Furthermore, our approach goes beyond the traditional school interactions and actively involves the family to create an action-based plan and ensure a path to successful and lasting recovery.

New Alliance Academy serves most communities in the northern New Jersey metropolitan area, including Bergen, Passaic, Morris, Hudson, Somerset, Union and Essex Counties. Upon the recommendation of a school district’s Child Study Team, a thorough review will be undertaken to determine if New Alliance Academy is the best possible placement.
