Q – HOW MUCH DOES YOUR PROGRAM COST?

For licensed chemical dependency treatment and mental health services:

The cost of services for your son will vary based on your son’s needs as assessed during a clinical evaluation, and in combination with a review of applicable healthcare insurance.   Our goal is to minimize your out of pocket expenses, while ensuring your son receives the appropriate level of services and care.

For therapeutic boarding school and behavioral health services:

Tuition at Lakeside Academy is $4,000/month for the 12-month program.   Financial assistance may be available to MN residents based on need.  Please contact our admissions team to discuss costs.

Health/Medical insurance does not cover tuition for private boarding schools. However, if supplemental mental health, drug treatment, or other medical services are required while your son is enrolled at Lakeside Academy, then personal insurance may cover these costs.
