Military School for Boys
Sending Your Son to Military School Too Soon Could Be a Disaster. Even if Your Troubled Teen Wants to Go Into the Military, Be Sure His Behaviors are Under Control FIRST.Agape Boarding School is not a military school, but we do work with and turn around troubled boys. While a military school may be an excellent choice for a teen that is interested in a military career, please keep this in mind: if your teen is defiant, rebellious, out of control, on probation, experimenting in drugs and alcohol or is diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, ODD or teen depression, a military school can be the worst thing for him, even if he wants to go into the military. In fact, he could be permanently prevented from going into the military if he shows up at a military school in this condition. He needs to get his behaviors under control first. Although military schools offer strict discipline, counseling or substance abuse therapy may be needed to get your son back on the right track. If your teen is out of control and you are considering a military school, you might want to consider Agape as a first step. Our tuition runs a little higher than some military schools, but it is significantly less than therapeutic boarding schools. Agape costs roughly $100 per day, while therapeutic boarding schools and substance abuse rehabs can cost $300 or more per day. Agape offers a academic support and can help your boy catch up and even get ahead in school. He can also retake classes he’s blown off in the past, to improve his grade point average. We also offer team sports and a pretty impressive campus.
Agape Puts Troubled Boys on a Better Path in Life
Agapé is unlike military schools because we deal with behavioral problems and emotional problems, like:
• Emotional immaturity • Academic failure • Making bad choices • Experimenting with alcohol and drugs • Defiant towards authority • Blame shifting and poor family relations • Running away, lying or stealing
