Christian Boarding School for Troubled Teenage Boys Who are Defiant or Struggling Academically
If your teenage 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 have gotten off track in life, or whose counselor or psychologist has diagnosed them with ADHD, ODD, ADD, RAD. Many of the boys in our care have anger or attachment issues which have surfaced in the teen years following an adoption, family split-up, or some other childhood trauma. Others are just rebellious, negatively influenced by peers, or have been thrown off track by minor drug or alcohol use.
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 Christian 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.
The Agapé boarding school campus is an amazing place with everything a boy would want, including: expansive sports facilities, huge game room, pool, horses, a climbing wall, a vast array of exotic and farm animals, a rodeo facility, rock climbing wall, and so much more. Our approach is disciplined, but loving. Our belief is that a truly changed heart comes from a personal relationship with God, so introducing faith to the boys in our care is our highest calling and privilege, yet it is not forced.
Compare our boarding school to therapeutic boarding schools or troubled teen boot camps and military schools and you will find that Agapé offers so much more, yet for much less cost. Our tuition is a fraction of that of wilderness programs and therapeutic boarding schools. Our amazing campus 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. Agapé operates to help transform troubled boys into respectful young men with renewed relationships, a new purpose in life and begin a walk with Christ.
Christian Boarding School that Helps Turn Around Rebellious Boys
Agapé is a Christian Boarding School that helps introduce troubled teenage boys to Christian values and goals in life. Boys also 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 Christian boarding schools, we only work with defiant and difficult boys, so we know how to work with them in a safe and secure way. We’re an affordable boarding school solution for your troubled boy.
