Adventure activities are also an important part of life at Black Mountain Academy. Our self-efficacy and confidence-building adventure therapy components are activities that teach students a variety of skills and values. Adventure therapy and recreation blend best practices by teaching skills such as preparation, patience, and diligence while strengthening independence, self-awareness, confidence, goal attainment, and interpersonal relationships.
Our boarding school incorporates adventure and recreational activities as a means of fun, expanding our students’ interests, and to fulfill our goals for social competency, experiential learning, and purposeful engagement in society. We intend to support our local economy while building close relationships with businesses that can serve our students interests and potentially partner as vibrant internship sites.
