New Perspectives - Dec, 1998 Issue #55

Clark Fork, Idaho
Claudya Whiteley, Director
Phillip Jones, Jr., Asst. Dir.

“Whiteley Meadows is a [boys] program offering traditional academic preparation in a highly structured and supervised setting. We are established to work with students who have not recognized nor utilized their full potential in the typical educational setting.”

“Whiteley Meadows is a family model home based program. We offer a drug and alcohol free environment that allows students to experience having fun while being clean and sober, as well as be successful academically. We limit enrollment to six (6) students. Students live in our home on an 18-acre campus. Vocational training is available along with traditional course work. Meals, vacations, chores, and experiencing outdoor activities are all shared as a family. We are near a National Forest, which affords us the opportunity for many outdoor activities including hiking, backpacking, cross-country skiing and camping. Schweitzer Ski Resort is 45 minutes away from our campus, providing a weekly opportunity for snowboarding and skiing. Lake Pend Oreille is 10 minutes from campus for those who enjoy swimming, water-skiing, jet skiing and wake boarding. Outdoor activities are strongly encouraged.”

The program’s goal is to reintroduce and reinforce “the values and inherent qualities you instilled in your child.” Students attend classes at the Clark Fork Jr./Sr. High School, a fully accredited school of 150 students with a 10 to 1 student-teacher ratio, which has a fully equipped distant learning classroom.

(Educational consultant Linda Shaffer, Sandpoint, Idaho, 208-263- 8394, recently visited Whiteley Meadows) 

“After my recent December visit to “Whiteley Meadows, I would encourage others involved in school placements to visit as well. Clark Fork, Idaho’s beautiful mountains and green pastures were surely hidden on this cloudy, puddles ravaged, rain-on-top-of-snow day that north Idahoans and western Montanans know well. However, Claudya Whiteley and Phil Jones were on hand and very welcoming as was Whiteley Meadows’ smiling outdoor large dog named Griz. Griz shows his teeth in a friendly grin and wags his tail when visitors approach the house. Whitely Meadows’ back to basics setting in the mountains of northern Idaho has a lifestyle about it that can offer young teens many growth opportunities in a small, intimate family home setting that emphasizes nurturing, respect, fun, work ethic, safety, and, of course, academic achievement.”
