La Europa Academy both provides for and nurtures a culture of wellness in our program. Our strength-based approach is the foundation for teaching the skills for a balanced and vibrant life-style. Every day through food choices, exercise and yoga our students learn to develop their own wellness philosophy.

Meal Planning:  La Europa Academy employs a full-time cook and our menu is planned with a dietician. Each meal offers a variety of food options including whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables. When students progress in the program, they will have more opportunities to meal plan, cook and budget for food. 

Dietician:  Many of our students have struggled with healthy food choices.  They benefit from contracted services with our dietician who will create a meal plan, set nutrition goals, and explore the concepts of mindful eating.  Students also learn to recognize bodily cues such as hunger and satiety.    

Physical Activity:  Our students participate in planned physical activity a minimum of five days per week including strength-training three times per week, yoga, dance classes and varied aerobic options. Attendance at the local recreation center three to four times per week offers a variety of exercise choices. The students and staff participate in organized 5K runs in the warm weather season and downhill skiing, snowshoe hikes, cross-country skiing and snowboarding activities during the winter months. La Europa Academy is located within 30 minutes of several world- renowned ski resorts.  Additionally, several times annually, La Europa students take trips to explore the mountains and canyons of Utah in ways that are therapeutic as well as healthy. 

During this time of Covid-19, we have had to make modifications to some of the opportunities offered to our students.  We are providing more physical activities on campus to take the place of some off-campus physical activities we are not able to offer as Covid-19 modifications have been put in place.
