Trying to Find Military Schools or Boot Camps for Troubled Boys near Corryton, Tennessee?

While you seek out military schools or boot camps in or near Corryton, Tennessee, perhaps you will consider a residential program for boys that offers better results, absent the drill sergeant and trauma of a boot camp or military school. In fact, he will really like it here while he gets back on track in life.

Treasure Coast Boys Academy, on the Gold Coast of Florida, is a residential program and ranch specifically designed for at-risk boys.  It is part of the nationally acclaimed Teen Challenge program. Instead of the harsh environment of military schools and boot camps, Treasure Coast Boys Academy shows boys the right way to live through example, lessons, counsel, mentoring and team exercises. Also, removing distractions and getting away from troublesome situations is what helps to open the door to break destructive patterns of behavior. Unlike military schools and boot camps you may find near Corryton, TN, we believe that relationships are what make a long-term difference in a boy, not more anger, yelling and force.

Parents enroll their sons at Treasure Coast Boys Academy from across the country, including from Corryton, Tennessee, both to let them spend time in a new environment and to experience the loving and fun environment they find here. Enrollment is year-round.

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 working ranches and orchards. During our program, we focus on character, integrity, hard work, and respect. We promote an atmosphere of positive peer pressure. We give boys responsibility for work projects and chapel services on campus to keep them engaged in what is their home away from home. We desire to see residents mature in their faith in Christ, and we provide worship, chapel services, bible studies, discipleship, retreats and mission trip opportunities to support that growth. Boys also stretch and encourage each other in their faith. Would any of that happen in a military school or boot camp? That’s unlikely.

A Better Option than Military Schools and Boot Camps for Boys from Corryton, TN

In our program, boys remain physically and mentally active and challenged throughout their stay. Our recreational and sports facilities include a well-equipped gym and a professional array of weight machines, soccer field, baseball diamond, basketball court, pool, game room, fishing ponds, and horses. We often go fishing on the Florida waterways and out in the ocean. The highlight of the program is an incredible wilderness experience in the mountains of North Carolina during the last month of the boys’ residency. Whitewater rafting, hiking, camping, and other adventures show that life can be simultaneously adventuresome and positive.

comparison to military schoolsWhile we offer individual, group, and family counseling in traditional settings, we find that most life-changing encounters tend to take place during outdoor activities and in the course of daily life. Counseling takes place frequently during the day, in all settings, through conversations with mentors during chores or activities. We put great importance on mentorship, providing the boys with positive male role models during their time with us.

Our on-campus academy operates year-round to give students the chance to fulfill any missed credits. We have on-campus teachers who facilitate the boy’s education and tutor individual students. Boys from Corryton, Tennessee quickly catch up on missed coursework or get far ahead.

We believe that the most important change is a heart change — knowledge  that Jesus Christ has a purpose and a plan for each individual’s life. Through biblical studies, exciting chapel services, the daily discipline of chores, and regular attendance in our private school, Treasure Coast Boys Academy offers a once “out-of-control”  teenage boy a second chance at a successful future.  Again, unlike military schools and boot camps, our emphasis and main tool is a change of heart, not fear or breaking of the spirit.

“At Treasure Coast Boys Academy…our son received exactly what he needed to get back on track in life. Treasure Coast Boys Academy 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 a Treasure Coast Boys Academy students convey heartfelt gratitude for the transformation they saw in their son.
