Year-Round Christian Boarding School for Teenage Boys Who are Defiant, Rebellious, or Struggling Academically

Year-Round Boarding School that Turns Around Difficult or Defiant Teenage Boys Who Are Failing in Life

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. We help 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. Our belief 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.

Compare Agapé to therapeutic boarding schools or military schools and you will find that Agapé offers so much more for your boy.

An Affordable Program that Helps Turn Around Rebellious Boys

If your son is out of control, was expelled or is failing school, rebellious, defiant, experimenting with alcohol or drugs, or if you feel you are losing your son to his peers, we will 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 reinforces proper behavior, responsibility, and strong goals in life.

Why is it Called Agapé?

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.
