An Open Letter to International Educators

By Stephen C. Schultz


Please allow me to share an experience I had at one of the International ICEF Conferences in Montreal. I was speaking with an educator from Canada and she mentioned to me;

“I wish I had known about your services last year. I had a student from China who struggled with an eating disorder. We did all we could to assist her, but she was eventually sent back to China. She was embarrassed, her parents were embarrassed, it was not a good outcome for this girl or her family. Is this the type of student you can help?”

I said, “Absolutely!”



Please feel free to review the below links to learn more about Discovery Academy for teenagers and our short term Medicine Wheel program for young adults age 18-25.  

I have been asked by educators, consultants and agents alike how we might work together. My hope is that we can be seen as a resource when you have a student that needs this level of assistance. We can be a solution focused option for the student and their parents.

Students enter our very specialized academic services through two methods. They come to us on referral from schools or they are recommended by Educational Consultants. The students are generally struggling with academics due to depression, substance use, eating disorders or sexual concerns which consist of abuse, trauma or addiction.

I hope you find this information helpful. Too often students who struggle because of emotional concerns get discouraged and drop out of school. There is an option for these students and their families to have an international boarding school experience without the failure so often associated with the burden of emotional concerns.

The Young Boy and the Rattlesnake

By Stephen C. Schultz (Editors note: This is a story used in a Wilderness Treatment Program for Young Adults . Many come to this program having struggled with substance abuse and interacting with unsavory friends.)   Many years ago there was a young Native American who lived in the very land you are residing in. He decided to seek wisdom by journeying to the top of Indian Peak. As he approached the base of the mountain he came across a rattlesnake that slithered beside him. The snake coiled as if to strike and the young boy moved back quickly in fear of being struck by the snake’s deadly venom. At that instant the snake spoke to the boy saying, “Don’t be afraid of me, I mean you no harm. I come to you to ask a favor. I see that you are about to traverse to the top of Indian Peak and was hoping that you may be willing to place me in your satchel so that I don’t have to make the long journey alone.” The young boy surprised by the snake’s request quickly responded b

An Open Letter to Parents Researching RedCliff Ascent

By Stephen C. Schultz "We will be known forever by the tracks we leave." Having been raised in Oregon, I spent the majority of my childhood and teenage year’s steelhead fishing the coastal waters, climbing the Middle Sister in the Cascade Mountain Range, drifting the McKenzie River and hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.  I have mentioned to friends, family and colleagues on many occasions;   “From a therapeutic standpoint, there is no better place to have a student’s issues manifested quickly than in a wilderness setting.” The question then becomes, “Why do therapeutic issues rise to the surface in an Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare program like RedCliff Ascent ?” Throughout the years of teenage development, most teens spend a lot of time with friends. These friends think the same, dress the same, act the same, listen to the same music and sometimes get into the same types of trouble. Some teens also develop patterns of communication and manipulation
