Reflections Academy is a small, homelike, 12-14 month residential therapy and boarding school opportunity for teenage girls set in the natural beauty of Northwest Montana. Girls come to Reflections when they are struggling with anger, addictions, disrespect, low self-esteem, attachment disorders, adoption issues, anxiety, and depression. Reflections seeks to be a safe haven for struggling girls and their families.
Reflections Academy works to help teenage girls shift their thinking from negative, self-damaging beliefs about themselves, to positive, self-enfacing beliefs which help them make healthier choices. The program helps girls to turn inward, to reflect upon their beliefs about themselves and their lives, and to practice living in a healthier mindset about themselves, others, and God in a safe setting.
The campus is located in Thompson Falls, a small town in Montana, surrounded by majestic mountains and cut by The Clark Fork River. The natural setting is one of the primary drivers of Reflections' therapeutic model.
Some important aspects we would like to highlight in the logo are the following:
1) Safety - a safe haven
4) Nature, mountains, water, trees
5) A sense of adventure
Our executive director, who will also be reviewing submissions, has said the following about what she desires to see:
"I would like to see a logo that emphasizes the idea of reflecting on yourself - the whole mission of the program is to help the teens take a very hard look at what they are thinking particularly about themselves."
Focus on soothing, safe colors, natural earth tones, greens, browns, blues, darker shades of red, violet, etc. We suggest you stay away from overtly bright or neon colors.
We're not too picky on this front, but please make sure at least that the lettering for "Reflections Academy" is both legible and recognizable from afar. Given that constraint, and the constraints set in the "Important Aspects" section, we'll leave it up to you.
We're excited to see your submission! Your contribution will help us work toward helping young girls become healthier in their minds, hearts, and bodies. We're extremely thankful for your help and are looking forward to working with you in the future.
