Troubled Teen Programs

At the successful completion of this first phase, teens can qualify to move to our Next Step program of living in on-campus housing and working to earn specific freedoms and privileges.
During all phases of these programs, teens attend academic courses in our on-campus, fully accredited academy. Here, students can earn credits toward middle and high school graduation.
