On December 4, 2014, Tami Harris explained their program to facilitate spiritual life in Heritage School in Utah, a secular Therapeutic Boarding School and Residential Treatment Center for adolescents. Tami is the school's Director of Spiritual Care and their Chaplain. In this interview she describes her mission to give all students the opportunity to grow in their spiritual life in addition to the emotional growth and therapeutic healing which is the overall mission of Heritage School. Participation is not required, but most of the students decide on their own to either practice their own religion they were raised in, or to sample other practices of religions they are not familiar with. The goal is to make sure this spiritual and religious opportunity is available. The latest addition is the first Kosher Kitchen in a RTC in the country for their Jewish students. This joins the regular Catholic Mass on campus, various Protestant denominations services and non-denominational service opportunities that are spiritual in the sense of giving.

Nikki Preece, Ex. Dir. of Fulshear Ranch Academy, a therapeutic boarding school near Houston Texas for young women ages 18 and above, joined Lon Oct. 9, 2014 to explain their adoption of an Attachment Model last Spring for their young adult women. Nikki explained how these girls suffer from attachment insecurity and often have been adopted. This decision was made from comments by their students that had been in many therapeutic programs and felt they "learned nothing good about themselves.' The girls are now very positive and enthusiastic about this new approach Nikki explained.

John Dewey Academy in Massachusetts is described here by Headmaster Dr. Ken Steiner as a Therapeutic Boarding School unique in the quality of their High School academics. Many teachers have their doctorates and all have advanced degrees and years of teaching experience. Students are those who have serious behavioral problems but also have good academic potential but upon enrollment it is problematic if they will even graduate from high school, let alone have a successful college career. In its 29 year history, hundreds of students have graduated, they all have continued on to quality collages with most graduating from college and many being on the Dean's list.
In its 12th year as a coed therapeutic boarding school for teens ages 12-17, owner Ben Trane in this interview talks about the school’s successes and evolution. He explains he feels that a student body size of 125 is about the right size for struggling teens who need help but not intensive hospital therapy and intends to stay at that size.
He further explains that Midwewst Academy had never been a member of the controversial World Wide Association of Speciality Schools and Programs (WWASSP) but is concerned that critics have associated the school with WWASSP because they once had been part of Premier Education which most WWASSP schools had used. He then explains there are significant differences between Midwest Academy and WWASSP schools in that Midwest Academy never used WWASSP stype finders fes marketing techniques and having more sophisticated academics than the WWASSP schools had used.
