Treasure Coast Academy is a nonprofit boarding school designed to bring about a change in behavior and attitude in boys who are struggling with life-controlling issues. Our sprawling campus on Florida’s Treasure Coast includes everything a boy needs to be happy and learn new, more constructive ways to think and behave. Our program features counseling and mentoring, and our activities include soccer, kickball, basketball, swimming, fishing, camping, horseback riding and more. We know you treasure your boy, and we’ll treasure him as well. He’ll receive counseling, adventure, and a first-class education.
“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
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 a lifetime!
