troubled teen boys ranchTreasure Coast Boys Academy enrolls 50 boys ages 13 to 18 at our residential boarding school on a 30-acre parcel surrounded by ranch and orchard country. Over our program, we emphasize character, integrity, hard work, and respect. We promote an environment of positive peer pressure. We give boys responsibility for work projects and special events on campus to keep them involved in what is their home away from home. We desire to see residents grow in their faith in Christ, and we provide worship, chapel services, bible studies, discipleship, retreats and mission trip opportunities toward that end. Students also challenge and support each other in their faith. Would any of that happen in a military school or boot camp? That’s unlikely.

The highlight of the program is a spectacular 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 both adventuresome and constructive.

Counseling is offered frequently during the day, in all settings, through conversations with mentors during chores or activities. We place great importance on mentorship, providing the boys with positive male role models during their time with us.

More about military schools and boot camps in Panama City Beach, Florida (Panama City Beach, FL):
Panama City Beach is a city in Bay County, Florida, United States, on the Gulf of Mexico coast. The city is often referred to under the umbrella term of “Panama City”, despite being a distinct municipality from the older and larger inland Panama City to the east, making Panama City and Panama City Beach two separate cities. Panama City Beach’s slogan is “The World’s Most Beautiful Beaches” due to the unique[] sugar-white sandy beaches of Northwest Florida.
For quite some time Panama City Beach has been a popular vacation destination, especially among people in the Southern United States. The city is also a very popular spring break destination, sometimes being referred to as “The Spring Break Capital of the World,” due to about 100,000+ college and high school students who arrive during the months of March and April.
Well-known locations in the city were places such as “The Hang-Out” at the Long Beach Resort motel, Shipwreck Island, and the now closed original Miracle Strip Amusement Park. A construction boom from 2001 to 2007 dramatically changed the beachfront skyline with high rise condos and hotels. New attractions, such as Pier Park , located in the heart of Panama City Beach, are a positive turn-around from the real estate down-turn from 2007-2009.
