Greenbrier Academy for Girls is a behavior modification facility marketed as a boarding school. It is located on Route 3 just north of Pence Springs, West Virginia [1].

The building were a resort before being converted into a behavior modification facility [2]

It did open on september 24, 2007 [3] [4]

The owners state in their brochure that they will be able to detain 95 girls in the future. An article published on February 2008 speaks of 8 girls detained at the facility.

Among the staff is a Mr. Mitchell, which were investigated in relationship with the death of a boy in another program, he used to operate. This program was called Alldredge Academy

Program structure

The teenagers which are going to be detained at the facility are recommended to have been detained at a wilderness course before being shipped to this facility.

Due to lack of information their homepage it is uncertain if they will use the level system similar to the system also used at New Haven RTC and Sunrise RTC


The girls has have been detained at a wilderness program prior to be detained at the facility, so the staff don't have to use time to break their spirits.


One thing differs from the other programs is that the facility can rent the girls out as cheap labor as a kind of work / human aid therapy.

Whether in a Central American orphanage, for example, or a hurricane ravaged community, girls will have a "hands-on" opportunity to serve and live with people who are suffering and in need.

In the news

A former employee claimed that she was subjected to sexual innuendo and claims about an unethical relationship between a staff member and a girl detained at the facility was stated in the Sunday Gazette-Mail [5] [6]. In a press release published from the industry marketingsfirm the facility denied the allegations [7]
