Here at Shelterwood, we’ve created the environment where students CAN grow and change. We’re centrally located in Independence, Missouri, which is in the Kansas City area. Our great airport with Southwest and other major airlines is convenient from anywhere in the country. Our campus is located on 220 wooded acres, set apart from the local community. Our campus includes outdoor courts, wilderness trails, a swimming pool, beautiful gymnasium, a soccer field, classrooms, dorms and counseling offices. Female and male students live in separate lodges, with same-gender mentors. We serve teens from all over the United States, Canada, and some international students as well. Ultimately, most parents choose us after extensive research because they want the very best program to help their child.
