A Therapeutic Boarding School Can Be a Lifeline for At-Risk Teenagers
Each school seeks to help each young person find and reach their life potential. They help the young people get free of damaging addictions or self-destructive behavior and learn the value of a positive work ethic. They help the young people recover from the hurt of a traumatic past and learn to trust again. Moreover, they help young people learn to value education and pursue a better plan for their lives.
Students at each Troubled Teen Academy are surrounded by a caring staff and given incentive for change. Increasing rewards and responsibilities are given as they make progress in the program. It is our goal that every young person that comes to a Troubled Teen Academy leaves it possessing the tools to rebuild family relationships and build a healthy future. Students are taught responsibility; they will learn teamwork through sports and work. They gain character through the application of character principles in everything they do. And through it all, they will enjoy themselves and get to be kids without the burdens of their past troubles.
