Christian Boarding Schools in Tacoma, Washington

Looking for a Christian boarding school near Tacoma, Washington? Is your teenager spinning out of control? We can help you, without charge…

There is nothing worse than having your teen spinning out of control, and no worse feeling than the sadness parents experience in the process. It is hard to know what to do and how to react when your adolescent daily reaches new lows in disobedience, dishonesty, and disrespect, and chooses every wrong thing.

We know, because we went through it with our son. Raised in a Christian home and mostly home-schooled until high school, we suddenly found that we didn’t know him. He had changed seemingly overnight. His marks in school started falling and his interest in sports and old friends shifted to a new group of friends — the kind parents are wary of — the kind of kids that got kicked out of a public school, so the local private school took them in.

Little did we know, our son was already heavy into smoking pot, sniffing solvents, drinking alcohol and just about everything else his new peer group dared him to do. The downward spiral was dramatic — all the way down to holes-in-the-walls rages, running away for days at a time, and finally threatening suicide. After months in counseling, the therapist proclaimed that there was nothing more he could do. He recommended a local residential program and school where issues could be dealt with and the influence of his negative peer group could be broken.

Putting our son in a therapeutic Christian boarding school was the hardest thing we’ve ever done as parents.

Not only would it mean selling everything and cashing in all of our savings and the boy’s college fund, but it would mean not seeing our boy for long periods of time. We cried for two days after dropping him off. But then, two weeks later, we learned our boy had been attacked on campus. Unfortunately, the program we put him in was also taking in some violent gang kids (they hadn’t told us that), and our son was soon their target, nearly killing him. After his recovery, we went on our own search for the right therapeutic school where he could be safe and be counseled for his issues – after all, he still needed help, and now he also needed therapy for the trauma of being attacked.

We learned from this traumatic experience that therapeutic programs can be quite different and need to be selected based on their strengths and avoided if they have serious weaknesses. It’s important to know what those are.

Some therapeutic boarding schools are good, and others are not so good. Some target one set of issues; others are experts on other issues. But talking to them, they want to fill their beds, so they’ll often present themselves as “experts in all areas” having to do with behavior.  But that’s not always so. Some kids are just being rebellious, but others are really dealing with serious issues that may not be known to their parents. So choosing a “behavioral modification” program when a “therapeutic” program is needed can do more harm than good.  It can also be a big waste of money.

No one was around to help us in Tacoma find the right program for our boy. We made a mistake to begin with, and that cost us dearly, but after weeks of research we found a good program that was able to help our son. Today, our family and even our son are thankful for that program.

The Christian boarding school we finally enrolled him in literally saved his life and got him off the downward spiral.

More about Tacoma, Washington:

Tacoma is a mid-sized urban port city and the county seat of Pierce County, Washington, United States.GR The city is on Washington’s Puget Sound, Convert southwest of Seattle, Convert northeast of the state capital, Olympia, and Convert northwest of Mount Rainier National Park. The population was 198,397, according to the 2010 census. Tacoma is the second-largest city in the Puget Sound area and the third largest in the state. Tacoma also serves as the center of business activity for the South Sound region that has a population of around 1 million people.
Tacoma adopted its name after the nearby Mount Rainier, originally called Mount Tahoma. It is known as the “City of Destiny” because the area was chosen to be the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railroad in the late 19th century. The decision of the railroad was influenced by Tacoma’s neighboring deep-water harbor, Commencement Bay. By connecting the bay with the railroad Tacoma’s motto became “When rails meet sails.” Today Commencement Bay serves the Port of Tacoma, a center of international trade on the Pacific Coast and Washington state’s largest port.
Like most central cities, Tacoma suffered a prolonged decline in the mid-20th century as a result of suburbanization and divestment.

Tacoma is also known for the odor — albeit reduced in recent years — caused by the Simpson Kraft pulp mill, known as “the aroma of Tacoma.” A song about Tacoma, “Thrice All American”, by American singer-songwriter and former resident Neko Case, describes it as “a dusty old jewel in the South Puget Sound / where the factories churn / and the timber’s all cut down”.
