How We Help

Understanding recovery helps us understand you.

Wellspring Academy is a public charter school, carefully designed and developed to help you live for today and see hope in tomorrow.

We’ve partnered with the best.

It was always our plan to launch in-person classes, but as we’ve all learned over the last several months, learning to pivot is important. In-person learning will begin in September 2021.

Wellspring Academy has chosen the Michigan International Prep School (MIPS) as our academic partner because of the MIPS commitment to the individual success of each student. MIPS has a customized, flexible and recovery-centered approach that makes them the perfect match for students who need additional support getting back on track toward reaching their academic and recovery goals. Through this partnership, Wellspring Academy will provide all recovery services and oversee day-to-day offerings, while MIPS will provide academic instruction, curriculum, quality oversight, information systems and training.

Mentor Program

One of the ways that we create an individualized plan is to put a team around each of our students. This team will be devoted to not only recovery goals, but academic achievement. Each student will be assigned a mentor that will walk with them throughout their academic/recovery journey. A mentor is so much more than an advisor; they truly get to know each student on a very personal level. They are devoted to their success and will ensure that they are working on their short-term and long-term goals.

The Impact of MIPS

MIPS graduates go on to:

  • College
    (Grand Valley State University, Madonna University, Michigan State University, Oakland University, University of Michigan, Wake Forest University, Wayne State University, Western Governors University and more)
  • Military service
  • Trade school
  • Direct transition into the workforce

You will be supported.

Addiction knows no boundaries and impacts the whole family. That’s why we take a holistic approach at Wellspring Academy. Together, we will work to ensure each student has the safety, resources and support necessary to be and do their best — both in the classroom and at home. This means we will provide resources and support services for the “care team” surrounding each student. Whether that is parent(s), friends, teachers, extended family, etc., we will work together to establish a plan that is grounded in education, security and stability. No matter what your family situation may be, there is one thing that we are committed to: you will be supported every step of the way.




The mission of Wellspring Academy is to provide a safe, sober and supportive academic environment where students can achieve their highest level of educational success and personal recovery. Wellspring Academy does not discriminate against any student because of race, gender, creed, religion or sexual orientation.
