Year-Round Christian Boarding School for Teenage Boys Who are Defiant, Rebellious, or Struggling Academically
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 is here to help. We are designed specifically to work with adolescent boys who are defiant or have gotten off track in life, or diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, RAD or others. We help boys who have anger or attachment issues that have surfaced in the teen years following an adoption, family split-up, death in the family, or some other childhood trauma. Others in our program come here because they are rebellious against their parents or authority, have gotten kicked out of school, are being negatively influenced by peers, or are involved in minor drug or alcohol abuse.
Our expansive ranch campus is an amazing place with everything a teenager 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. Our approach is very disciplined and structured, but loving and caring. Our belief is that a truly changed heart comes from a personal relationship with God; so faith is instilled in the boys, but it is not forced.
Compare Agapé to therapeutic boarding schools or military schools and you will find that Agapé offers so much more, yet for less cost. Our tuition is a fraction of that of wilderness programs and therapeutic boarding schools. Agapé is the perfect atmosphere where teen boys who struggle with authority or who have been swayed into bad behavior by their peers can get their lives back on the right track. We operate to help transform troubled boys into respectful young men with renewed relationships, and a new purpose in life, and have done so with hundreds of boys over the past 25 years.
Affordable Boarding School that Helps Turn Around Rebellious Boys
Agapé is an affordable boarding school that helps re-introduce troubled teenage boys to proper behavior, responsibility, and goals in life. Boys have the opportunity to get back on track academically and even retake classes for which they have gotten poor grades in the past. If your son is out of control, failing school, rebellious, defiant, experimenting with alcohol or drugs, or if you feel you are losing your son to his peers, we can help get him back on track! Contrary to typical boarding schools and military schools, we only work with boys who have gotten off track in life, so we strictly maintain discipline and security, while our staff show Christian love and care at all times.
Agapé is the Greek word defined as God’s unconditional love for mankind. That is what Agapé Boarding School is all about! We are a non-profit boarding school designed to show God’s love to teen boys who are struggling with behavior issues that can threaten their future. Agapé gives teens the opportunity to turn their life around by offering a fresh start, a quality education with fully accredited academics and college preparatory studies, as well as team and individual sports and vocational training.
