Agapé is a boys ranch that offers a wide variety of opportunities to put boys back on the right track toward a bright future. Many of these features are found in other programs, but you will not find the variety of opportunities on one ranch like Agapé. Along with 24/7 supervision and great food, they provide accredited academics, vocational training, mentoring, sports, and many of the activities that boys enjoy. This is one of the lowest cost troubled teen boarding schools. Agapé offers the same (if not better) quality and outcomes than therapeutic boarding schools, yet at about 1/3rd the cost.
If your boy, age 12-17, is out of control, angry, defiant, failing in school, hanging around the wrong crowd, or has been experimenting with life-threatening activities or substances, Agapé will turn around that behavior. Agape helps adolescent boys who are defiant or have gotten off track in life, or have been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, RAD or other behavioral issues.
Most parents choose Agapé because their boy is being rebellious against authority, has been expelled from a public or private school, or is being negatively influenced by peers.
This awesome ranch campus is an amazing place with everything a teenage boy would want, including: multiple sports facilities, a huge game room, pool, horses (including equine therapy), a vast array of exotic and farm animals, a rodeo facility, rock climbing wall, and so much more. The approach here is very disciplined and structured, but loving, relational and caring. The belief at Agape is that a truly changed heart ultimately comes from a personal relationship with God; so faith is instilled in the boys, but it is not forced.
