troubled teen boys ranchTreasure Coast Boys Academy serves 50 boys ages 13 to 18 at our residential boarding school located on 30 acres surrounded by working ranches and orchards. During the program, we focus on character, integrity, hard work, and respect. We cultivate a culture of positive peer pressure. Boys learn through work projects, designed to teach them a work ethic and how to manage their own time and resources. We desire to see teens grow in their faith in Christ, and we provide worship, chapel services, bible studies, discipleship, retreats and mission trip opportunities toward that end. Residents also challenge and encourage each other in their faith. Would any of that happen in a military school or boot camp? That’s unlikely.
