Company Background:

Welcome to Mount Prospect Academy (MPA), a rapidly growing alliance of nonprofit agencies founded in 1964, with the goal of helping struggling adolescents find a "zest for life" and succeed in the "business of life".

Mount Prospect Academy has evolved to offer a variety of mental health support services to a diverse population of "hard to treat" and "difficult to place" adolescence. Our targeted services include home and community-based treatment, residential treatment programs, group homes, and special education schools.


MPA's mission is to provide a caring, safe therapeutic environment where students have the opportunity to grow and acquire the skills they need to reach their educational and social potential. We aim to develop trusting relationships with students and facilitate experiences that promote their ability to self-regulate; manage thoughts and feelings; and develop feelings of safety, confidence, and competency.
