Eva Carlston Academy

Who We Are

Role Models. Mentors. Professionals.

Eva Carlston is a female owned and operated program that was founded, in part, to provide young women with strong and inspiring female role models. By hiring confident, accomplished, and compassionate women, Eva Carlston inspires the development of these same qualities in our students. Our superb male therapists and teachers round out the experience, modeling healthy male-female relationships with other staff members and offering girls the opportunity to relate with men in new, healthy ways.
