MindStream Academy - Bluffton, SC

Contact: Sarah Stone

Residential treatment for co-ed health and wellness boarding program for middle and high school students - who are overweight/ obese; have poor self-esteem and/or body image; have been bullied.

Superficially, MindStream is a boarding school on 43 gorgeous acres that used to be an Arabian horse farm in rural South Carolina not far from the famed Hilton Head Island. But actually, Mindstream is an entire world away.

The Academy is a full-service boarding school for high school students, capable of providing a fully credentialed semester of course work to any student, at any level. But uniquely, the school is designed for kids whose health, and future, and very lives are on the line -- due to obesity, and its attendant physical and psychological burdens.

Along with a semester of course work students at Mindstream are taught nutrition, cooking and fitness. Their instruction ranges from biofeedback to gardening, psychological counseling to the care of horses and from lengthy bike rides to the preparation of wholesome, gourmet meals.

Mindstream offers a world away where they can spend a semester, and change right now- lose weight, find themselves -- and in some cases, it seems, save their lives.
