Youth Counselor

Mount Prospect Academy

MPA's mission is to provide a caring, safe therapeutic environment where students have the opportunity grow and acquire the skills they need to reach their educational and social potential. We aim to develop trusting relationships with students and facilitate experiences that promote their ability to self-regulate; manage thoughts and feelings; and develop feelings of safety, confidence, and competency. 

Mount Prospect Academy offers a 220 day academic program and 365 day intensive residential program. We serve 85 male students who range from 11 to 21 years old.

Our students have been identified for intensive residential placement and in-home social services. MPA students can be clinically identified as emotionally handicapped, learning disabled, autistic, or other health impaired. We also serve students with psychiatric and judicial issues. MPA has developed an expert understanding of this difficult-to-serve population's needs. Our programs regularly receive students from the care of their families, New Hampshire's Division of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF), The Sununu Youth Services Center, and intermediate care facilities such as the Nashua Children's Home, the Dover Children's Home, the Webster House, and the Orion House. 


Youth Counselors at Mount Prospect Academy are positive role models for our students. In celebrating student successes, reinforcing positive behavior, engaging and connecting with them in an understanding and professional manner, you have opportunity to impact and change the lives of our youth of today and future adults of tomorrow. Join our team and make a difference!
