Treasure Coast Boys Academy
Turns Around Troubled Boys

“We had tried everything we could think of for our troubled son — all to no avail. Treasure Coast taught John self-control, physical work and teamwork, leadership skills and integrity. John received love, discipline, forgiveness, and persistent mentoring from dedicated staff members. This was a God-send for our broken family… restoring our relationship with our son. It is a place of hope, a place of love, and a place of renewal.” –Parents of TCA Student


A Life-Changing Boarding School for Struggling Boys That Features Florida Adventure Outings

Snorkeling, frequent beach outings, camping, and outdoor activities are usually not a part of the lives of most young people today, but they are with the boys here. God’s great outdoors is a great place for each of us to connect with each other and with God. It is through these fun outings that we so often are able to get the root of the issues in a boy’s life. It’s an easy place to talk and share hurts and pains; then the campfire that evening gives opportunity to further talk and pray for one another. These trips are memory makers that last!

Should you need help finding Teen Challenge, boarding schools for troubled teens, schools for troubled teenagers, Christian boarding schools, or boys homes near me, or any of the Teen Challenge schools, please let us know. Such boarding schools for boys and boys homes provide help for troubled teens. Other boys only schools and therapeutic boarding schools for boys are places to send troubled youth. The difference between an all-boy military school and a trouble teen therapeutic school has to do with discipline and methods they use. Military schools for teens are all about discipline, decorum, drills and repetitiveness. Therapeutic schools, residential treatment centers, and therapeutic boys homes provide counseling and therapy, and they often use therapeutic tools like equine therapy or animal therapy. Typical boarding schools are not places to send troubled youth, since they have no therapy and little discipline for troubled boys -- they usually will not enroll troubled teens and are not considered troubled teen schools. Christian boarding schools for boys are an exception, since they use a faith-based focus to bring about life transformation. Religious boarding schools can provide troubled teen help in their troubled youth residential programs. So, many who are seeking military schools for boys may want to instead look for schools for troubled boys, where they will find therapeutic boarding schools, residential treatment centers for boys, and Christian boarding schools. Our therapeutic boarding school in Florida is among the best therapeutic schools for boys. Christian boarding schools for boys like this provide troubled teens with teen counseling and therapy. This Teen Challenge boys ranch provides counseling and therapy to troubled teen boys from the southeast and especially from Florida, Georgia, Texas, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Louisiana and New York. Boarding schools and boys ranches for troubled boys like Teen Challenge can help at-risk teenage boys who are exhibiting oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), intermittent explosive disorder (IED), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). This boarding program is not a military school. Military schools are often a first thought when a boy is in trouble. Military schools can change teen behavior temporarily (out of fear), but lasting change rarely happens. Military high schools rarely enroll troubled teens. Intimidation is the main motivation for change at military schools, not therapy, so military schools fail to why a boy is misbehaving or out of control.
