Just Like a Military School…But BETTER!
We are a Structured, Disciplined Program that Turns Troubled Boys into Responsible and Motivated Young Men, But We Offer More…
Agape offers a long-term solution to teen behavior problems without the screaming and intimidation of boot camps.
Are you a parent of a troubled boy and don’t know what to do? Is your teen spinning out of control, rebellious, defiant, stealing, involved in self-destructive behavior, trouble with the law, or maybe he’s been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, or ODD? If so, then Agapé can help, and probably better than traditional military schools can.
Agapé is the complete solution that offers discipline, vocational training, mentoring, trades training and real help for troubled boys. We also have team sports and an awesome ranch facility with a fully accredited school. Typical military schools are unable to help the behaviors and motivations of boys that are angry, manipulative, or that might need spiritual help or emotional counseling. Although the boy might begin to show an improvement in behavior when under the strict supervision of the military drill sergeants, parents will often see a complete reversal a few weeks after the boy returns home.
Agape’s expansive 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, horeseback riding, rock climbing wall, football, soccer and baseball fields 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 military schools and you will find that Agapé offers so much more, yet for less cost. Agapé is a secure way that 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 transform troubled boys into respectful young men with renewed family relationships, and a new purpose in life, and have done so for hundreds of boys over the past 25 years.

How We Define Success
We define success at Agapé Boarding School as a boy who learns to overcome obstacles, keeps a good attitude, follows the instruction of authorities, and learns to interact well with his peers. Successful students display qualities such as discipline, respect, gratitude, humility, solid character, and a strong work ethic.
Successful residents not only demonstrate internal changes, but they learn to interact appropriately with others around them.
- Parents: Learn to respect and obey
- Peers: Learn to interact with those they like and those they dislike
- Themselves: Learn to take responsibility for their actions
- Authority: Learn to follow and respect, whether they agree or not
- Community: Learn to daily seek to help others
Like a military school, we also focus on leadership at Agapé Boarding School, although we recognize that not everyone has leadership skills. We encourage all boys to be positive role models among their peers. Agapé is a mini-world that teaches life skills, such as conflict resolution, coping strategies, and relational skills, on a daily basis.
Boys who graduate from Agapé Boarding School go on to a variety of opportunities including: the military, higher education, and trades. We offer college prep coursework for those who choose 4-year colleges. For those who enter trade schools, the solid work ethic and basic vocational skills they learn at Agapé serve them well with any employer.
