503. The Oakley School
The Oakley School in the South summit area in Utah was for many year owned by Aspen Education Group but is now under independent ownership.
While it was under AEG ownership it was often used as a step-down placement compared to the more restricted Island View “treatment” center.
Still reports of runaways were reported.
The events which took place during the AEG ownership will be covered by a documentary which currently is in the planning phase.
Also former students describe it as a holding place where the students revert to old ways once they are out.
It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
