38. Copper Canyon Academy
Copper Canyon Academy is a girls only private prison in Arizona. It has been used as entertainment in several episodes of Dr. Phil where girls have been locked up for doing what is both legal and normal in other countries.
It is not odd that there have several cases where some of the girls have escaped. In one case the police had to be called due to knife episode.
They have horses but the girls are isolated far away from family and peers.
The facility is now named Sedona Sky Academy. It was sold to Aspen Education Group but the founder purchased it back and renamed the facility due to the bad press coverage it had gained on various message boards and news.
