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.

We have been certified as an educational campus through SEVIS since 2005 and have been approved to issue Forms I-20 and maintain current F-1/M-1 student records.

Perfectly Wicked - A new take on an old fairy tale!

Guest Blogger Amanda Schultz Age 15 There she was…hair as black as night, lips as red as blood, skin as white as snow. Standing by the window, washing dishes, whistling while she worked. Snow White. I shudder with disgust every time I hear her name. What kind of a name is that anyway? “Snow White”. Gahhh, it’s a name that practically begs to be made fun of. Yet, there she goes, frolicking around like she owns the Enchanted Forest. No. I’m the Queen. I’m in charge. My magic mirror was mistaken. I’m the Fairest of them all, not that sorry excuse for a princess. One bite from my poison apple and that air-head will be so ugly not even her mother could love her. And I will be the Fairest once again! I suppose that I should rewind a little bit. It wasn’t always a competition between Snow White and me. In fact, back in the day, we had a nice little system going on. I would rule the kingdom and practice my magic, while Snow did the dishes and tended the garden. She stayed out of my w

Lessons I learned from a childhood experience with bullying

By Stephen C. Schultz The dew around the window was starting to bead up. In a classic case of chaos theory, the little beads of water gave way to gravity and randomly bounced and bumped their way to the window sill like a steal marble in a pinball game. There was a small pool of water in the cracked and peeling beige paint. I sat facing the window, staring at the small engraved stone nestled in the flower beds. There weren’t many flowers at this time of year. Mostly rhododendrons and Oregon grapes reaching skyward from the damp bark mulch that covered the planter area.   The month of January in Eugene Oregon was filled with days and days of mist and fog.   In fact, pretty much from October through June was filled with fog, rain, mist, showers, freezing rain and occasionally snow. The local weathermen didn’t bother with predictions about the chance of precipitation; they took pride in developing new adjectives to describe the type of precipitation and how much you can expect.

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
