Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Here you will find answers to frequently asked questions.

We have a maximum of 50 students.

We are passionate about early intervention and prevention and do not want to expose our students to older troubled teens who are often more entrenched in their negative behaviors and have been involved with more serious acting out behavior.  Younger students often look up to older students and are much more susceptible to peer pressure.  Troubled teens often bully younger and or smaller students and we want to protect our students from being bullied, harassed, hurt, etc.  Younger adolescents differ developmentally from older adolescents in terms of their difficulties, interests, stressors, cognitive abilities, psychosocial maturity, attention span, self-esteem, and brain development just to name a few of the differences.

Research has found that single gender education is more effective.  By only accepting male students we limit distractions so that the boys are more likely to focus on the reasons they have been enrolled in the program.  We also eliminate the possibility that the boys will have an inappropriate relationship or interaction with a female student.

Students receive nearly constant supervision as we have 24/7 wake staff supervising the students, patrolling the campus, and ensuring students safety. We generally maintain a staff to student ration of at least 1 to 4 but the staff to student ratio is often even higher as we do not count the therapists, administrators, office staff, or cooks in this ratio. We currently (11/10) have approximately 50 staff and only 30 students. As you would expect with such a high staff to student ratio we can provide lots of one-on-one attention, individualized academic and therapeutic plans, and very high quality care.
