Who We Are

At Pelham Academy, exceptional education and specialized trauma-informed treatment services go hand in hand. As part of the fully accredited Meadowridge family of schools, Pelham provides individualized treatment services to young women between the ages of 12 and 22 on a beautiful campus in the historic town of Lexington, MA. Many of our students come to us because they are struggling in traditional school settings due to issues such as past trauma, depression, anxiety, and mood disorders. Our supportive program allows students to continue their education in a safe, secure, and supportive environment in which they can learn and grow.

Pelham Academy uses comprehensive trauma specific models of treatment including the unique ARC treatment methodology, and works to ensure this treatment model is pervasive throughout all aspects of programming. Developed through the cutting edge work of Dr. Bessel van der Kolk and his colleagues at the Trauma Center at JRI, these intensive, individualized treatment interventions feature tailored services designed with a single goal in mind: to provide our students with the skills, strength, resiliency and competencies necessary for a healthy, vibrant and meaningful future.

Pelham Academy accepts private referrals as well as school system and state social service, youth service, mental health agency placements and educational agency referrals. Contact us for additional information.
