• A Fully Accredited Therapeutic Program & High School

Leading Licensure and Accreditation

It is important families feel safe and secure in choosing Solstice East. We understand families trust us with their children and we take this responsibility very personally.  This is why Solstice East works with leading organizations to provide accountability to the highest therapeutic standards.



Solstice East has been recognized by the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP), an association that works with programs that have been licensed by the appropriate state agency to set and oversee standards of residential, therapeutic, and/or educational services provided to adolescents. Members of the association must have therapeutic services with oversight by qualified clinicians and share a common mission to provide excellent treatment for our program participants; treatment that is rooted in good-hearted concern for their well-being and growth; respect for them as human beings; and sensitivity to their individual needs and integrity.


We partner with Cognia to offer a rigorous academic program that accommodates your child’s specific needs. Cognia provides an explicit set of standards and criteria for accreditation and certification. Meeting and exceeding these academic standards results in a valuable recognition of academic excellence. Teachers at Solstice East have years of professional experience working in different school systems using various hands-on learning strategies.
