Nevada Horizon Academy is one of the less known facilities among the WWASP behavior modification facilities. It is placed on the corner of West Mecca Road and Highway Route 373 in Amargosa Valley, Nevada [1]

It is placed in a remote area with desert around it. Nearest town is Pahrump. Before it became a behavior modification family it was a hotel with the name Desert Village Hotel [2]

Unlike Sky View Academy, which used the same detention system and was shut down by the authorties in Nevada, it remains open.

After the Mexican autorities closed Casa by the Sea, the founder Jade Robinson tried to open the school in California under the name Bell Academy, but the authorities didn't allow it to operate in this state so it moved just across the stateline to the present location.

Program structure

It uses WWASP level system.

Education

They are accredited by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. This associasion normally acredits middle school. Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities is the recognized regional accreditation agency for post-secondary institutions in the seven-state region served by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. As a result of this division of responsibilities, neither the United States Department of Education nor the Council for Higher Education Accreditation recognizes the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools as an accrediting agency for institutions of higher education. This paradox meant that another of the facilities under the WWASP umbrella – Academy at Ivy Ridge was fined.

Living conditions

While the facility is co-ed, boys and girls are separated [3].

Horizon Academy is only co-ed insofar as it accepts both boys and girls. There is no regular mixing of the two. They do not dine together, they do not study together, they are only allowed in each other's presence during joint lecture series or the odd field trip.

Each of the detained teenagers sleeps in rooms with 4 to 8 teenagers of their own gender.

Communication

Until the behavior of the teenager is modified to a certain level in the level system, the only kind of communication is by letters. Phone calls are considered a privilege.

Once both the parents and the detained teenager has taken a number of semiars (LGAT's) the parents are not allowed to visit.
