This structured residential program is set in a remote wilderness location. Treatment modalities include life skills training, education and faith-based programming. Vocational shop classes are provided in woodworking, carving and building repairs. Average length of stay is 6 to 9 months. Youth should bring personal clothing sufficient for one week. Due to the remoteness of this location, youth with serious medical problems (medical grade 1) or on psychotropic medications are precluded.

Crossroads Wilderness (school number 80281) is a Type 2 program offering English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and one elective course. The elective course is typically used to provide additional reading assistance to needy students or vocational training.

Education and vocational services are provided through the Charlotte County School District.
