Where Every Student Matters
We Expect Great Things from Our Young Women

For at-risk adolescent females, the world can be a frightening and overwhelming place that lacks dependable support systems and protection from abuse, neglect and violence. As a result, many of them suffer physical and emotional harm and turn to substance abuse and destructive behavior to cope with circumstances that they cannot control.

At New Outlook Academy, located on the border of Baldwin Borough in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, we provide a comprehensive and safe rehabilitative residential setting for young women ages 13-18, in grades 7-12. Our school is multi-faceted, interweaving academics, clinical treatment, vocational training, counseling and extra-curricular activities. It provides the transforming environment and unwavering support necessary for these girls to redirect their lives.

From the moment they begin their day, our students are reminded that they are precious and unique and that they are deserving of every opportunity to achieve their dreams.  Safe from the trauma they may have experienced in their past, they begin to see their potential to develop and flourish. Surrounding by people committed to their care, they shine.

A place where you can have a fresh start.

We’re a home away from home and a place where the possibilities are endless. New Outlook Academy provides students with a personalized experience to education and self-growth. Our staff is dedicated to finding students’ strengths and building them up upon them.
