Agapé is an Effective and Affordable Program for Teenage Boys with Behavioral, Motivational, or Academic Struggles
Agapé 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 campus like Agapé. Along with 24/7 supervision and great food, we provide accredited academics, vocational training, mentoring, sports, and many of the activities that boys enjoy. We are one of the lowest cost troubled teen boarding schools. Agapé offers the same (if not better) quality and outcomes than therapeutic boarding schools, yet we are about 1/3rd the cost.
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.
Our Three Main Goals
1. Spiritual Growth
First, we help students to develop spiritually, which we believe will improve all other areas of the boy’s life and his relationships with others.
2. Behavioral Growth
Second, we help students to develop better behavior. Your son will learn many life skills and become a productive member of society. As his behaviors improve, he will begin to display character, discipline, and personal accountability, and he will rebuild broken relationships. We foster these changes through our structured environment, a level system for earning privileges and responsibilities; simple day to day events and responsibilities on campus that become learning experiences. Above all, we emphasize that lasting behavioral change is through a transforming relationship with Christ.
3. Academic Growth
Third, we provide fully accredited studies and individual instruction to help boys achieve academically. As students’ behavior improves, they often find new motivation in school. Your son will receive the credits needed to get back on track with his education or receive his diploma.
