The Minnesota Girls Academy is founded upon the belief that all individuals have potential for change and can develop and grow.

The basic foundation of MGA’s treatment and teen help program builds upon safety – personal,
physical, emotional, social, and spiritual. Residents will experience an atmosphere that
cultivates individuality, supports healthy and nurturing relationships, and teaches
acceptance of differences. The program for troubled teens affords young people with daily opportunities
that will empower them with the ability to make meaningful life choices and to become
more confident, secure, and healthy in all aspects of their lives.  While partnering with
families and the local populace, our ultimate goal is to help girls transition back as
successful, contributing members of their respective communities.
