OUR STUDENTS - Many youth who have experienced complex trauma or mental health difficulties are left feeling marginalized, alone, and helpless to make change.  Pelham Academy is dedicated to providing exceptional treatment to adolescent girls in order to build skills to manage difficult emotions and to build self esteem.  Our goal is to foster the belief in each student that not only does she deserve a happy and healthy life, but she can achieve one.
