Residential Treatment

Continuously operated since 1913, in 2014 Starr formed a partnership with Sequel Youth and Family Services to manage its powerful residential treatment program. Utilizing their national network of human service clients, Starr’s Residential Program, otherwise known as Starr Albion Prep, is now able to extend it services well beyond the Great Lakes states and serve boys and girls from across the country.

Starr’s historic campus is also now home to a charter school, ensuring each student not only has access to our therapeutic, group living programs, but also to a supportive education. With students graduating on campus once again, the energy and opportunity before them continues to build within the halls and cottages of Starr Albion Prep.

Starr Albion Prep Programs:

Starr Albion Prep provides therapeutic programs for the following referred individuals:

  • Juvenile Justice – Designed to help boys, ages 12-18, develop interpersonal problem-solving and cooperative-living skills.
  • Substance Abuse – This program helps youth feel comfortable talking openly about their situation and is open to boys, ages 12-18.
  • Sexually Reactive Youth (SRY) – This program encourages positive youth development as boys ages 12-18 talk through and understand their behaviors.

In addition, Starr Albion Prep is proud to offer various athletic and arts programming whereby its students explore and identify new areas of interest – and find new, healthy outlets to apply their energy.
