troubled teen boys ranchTreasure Coast Boys Academy enrolls 50 boys ages 13 to 18 at our residential boarding school on a 30-acre parcel in ranch and orchard country. In the course of our program, we focus on character, integrity, hard work, and respect. We promote an atmosphere of positive peer pressure. We give boys ownership in work projects and chapel services on campus to keep them engaged in what is their home away from home. We want to see boys mature in their faith in Christ, and we provide worship, chapel services, bible studies, discipleship, retreats and mission trip opportunities toward that end. Boys also challenge and encourage each other in their faith. Would any of that happen in a military school or boot camp? That’s unlikely.
