About Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Colorado

Founded in 1943, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Colorado serves youth, ages 10 to 19, with social, emotional and behavioral challenges.

Located in Westminster, Colorado, a northwest suburb of Denver, Devereux Colorado offers a school-based day treatment program that is licensed by the Colorado Department of Education and accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and Cognia.

At Devereux Colorado’s Cleo Wallace Academy, an Approved Facility School, students are provided a unique education program to help them thrive and reach their full potential. We believe in valuing the unique differences of our students and providing a safe and caring environment for all learners, while treating each other with respect and integrity. Cleo Wallace offers in-person learning that allows our youth to meet their Individualized Education Plan goals, and focuses on Colorado Department of Education Standards. Small class sizes (10 students per class) and a trauma-informed framework create a therapeutic learning environment for all of our students.
