In Balance Academy is located on 140 acres near Tombstone, Arizona. The tranquil setting provides the perfect, safe, drug-free environment for our students to develop emotionally, socially and academically. Mountain ranges serve as a backdrop to a peaceful desert landscape that promotes self-reflection and serenity.

Modeled after an old west town, our campus facilities include:

  • Unique student cottages that provide a sense of home experience.

  • Staff and administrative offices. 

  • Large dining facility with a commercial kitchen for our culinary courses. 

  • Recreation patio with pool, ping-pong, and foosball tables.

  • Several barns, pastures and riding arenas. 

  • Physical education facilities, including a 1200 Sqft Crossfit gym, a basketball court, soccer, lacrosse, ultimate frisbee and football field, and sand volleyball court; the fields and court are lit for cool evening play

  • Music Room with guitars, drums, amplifiers, soundboard, and recording equipment. Many of our students are interested in music and can learn and practice during music workshops and free time. The music room has a large deck where students put on concerts throughout the year and during other special events.

  • Art room that includes a pottery wheel and kiln.

  • State-of-the-art school house, complete with a computer lab, four traditional school rooms, large conference room with podium and projector, and library.  

  • A warm, inviting clinical office building.

  • A 1200 square foot Crossfit/Fitness gym that has wall balls, olympic lifting equipment, rowers, gymnastic rings, pull up rigs, rope climbs, free weights, and anything else you could dream of in a CrossFit gym.


The student cottages allow us to provide a home-like environment that encourages peer interaction and the development of essential life skills. Along with the Old West flavor, the Academy provides a sense of adventure that teen boys find exciting – not your typical therapeutic setting.
