The Tennessee campus has six homes and two horse farms spread across 86 acres. The caring, transformational program is a blend of: Academics, Counseling, Vocational training, Mentoring, Spiritual guidance, and Equine therapy

Timothy Hill also offers a workforce development program on each campus (teaching them to be on time, work hard, and attain gainful employment), with proximity and relationship with BOCES, daily devotional, and church attendance.

At the Timothy Hill New York and Tennessee campuses, boys 13-17 years old gain confidence, build character, and develop life skills through on-site work projects. Boys also learn to use many different hand and power tools. As they progress, they are allowed, with supervision, to apply for and obtain off-site work.

therapeutic schoolsThe wide variety of on-site trades include Carpentry, Woodworking, Electrical Work, Plumbing, Computer Basics, Culinary Arts, Animal Husbandry, Agriculture, Auto Mechanics, Barista training, and much more.

The Timothy Hill vocation staff aids teen boys in learning accountability, transportation, and company compliance, and each boy’s hard-earned paychecks go into a savings account. The program also keeps teen boys moving toward independent living as young adults.
