Agape Boarding School

Agape Boarding School sportsOur staff have completed several site visits and talked to dozens of parents who have placed their teenager at Agape. We have found Agape Boarding School to be a very affordable, yet high-quality program for troubled or rebellious boys; also giving them a quality college prep education and competitive team sports. The sprawling campus is first-class and new and always improving. It is designed around the boys interacting with and caring for hundreds of kinds of farm and exotic animals, which is part of the therapy. The Agape approach is loving, but firm and regimented — what most troubled boys need.  They offer 24/7 watchful care for the boys and godly relationships and mentoring.

Agape Boarding School specializes in working with and counseling boys who are defiant, unmotivated in school, hanging around with the wrong crowd, or have been experimenting with alcohol or drugs. They also work with teens diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, ADD, or experiencing depression.
