Campus Life

 
The school’s 17 acre wooded campus is located on the peaceful banks of Oak Creek, approximately 15 miles southwest of beautiful Sedona, Arizona. The temperate climate of this region makes it an ideal setting for teens to enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities.

Students live on campus in small houses or dormitories that are monitored by dorm supervisors. They are responsible for assisting the students with their daily routines and activities before and after school. The dorm supervisors live in the dormitories in their own rooms or apartments. By living with the students they are available day or night to help them with any issues that may arise.

OCRS follows a merit point system which rewards students for engaging in positive behavior and eliminates privileges for those who engage in negative behavior. Students who do not follow the school’s written policies and guidelines lose points. Depending upon the infraction, students may be assigned chores and other work detail to be completed after school or on weekends. The students who follow the rules and generally engage in positive behavior are rewarded with points which may be exchanged for extra privileges.

Our unique program helps students recognize that their actions affect themselves and others. They develop the ability to consider all possible outcomes resulting from their decisions and their behaviors. They accept responsibility and consequences for their negative actions as well as the responsibility and rewards for their positive actions.
