Parents contacting C.A.R.E. have tried everything to stop the downward spiral associated with teenage rebellion. However, traditional counseling, clinical therapy, and residential treatment centers have not worked, and the rebellious child seems to have gotten worse. 

Residential Boarding Schools for Troubled Teens

All four C.A.R.E. schools are designed to get the struggling student back on track emotionally and academically. The C.A.R.E schools are best known for emotional restoration, academic restoration (second chance to improve GPA and catch up on credits), and family restoration. Many parents recognize the C.A.R.E. programs as a "Therapeutic Boarding School", which is an academic-based residential treatment program. Parents and students of the C.A.R.E. boarding schools recognize the four programs as theraepeutic boarding schools with a major commitment toward clinical services, therapeutic intervention, and academic counseling. 

Therapeutic boarding schools for gifted, talented, yet rebellious kids. When students of C.A.R.E. schools join the parents and the staff in beoming strong college-bound leaders they experience the miracle of total restoration. Our goal is to assist troubled teens toward "total restoration" with his/her family, academic excellence, and the restoration of their future. Every student of the C.A.R.E schools are seen as a successful college-bound young man or young lady. Therapeutic boarding schools for struggling teens.

C.A.R.E. - Residential Treatment in a Therapeutic Boarding School Setting

The typical C.A.R.E student is a young man or young lady who has rejected his/her parental authority and is in rebellion. These troubled boys and troubled girls refuse to follow the family rules, is enamored by the material trappings of this world, is caught up in peer acceptance, is emotionally immature, self-centered, and self absorbed. The typical student has experimented with drugs (alcohol and marjiuana), is sneaking out and lying about their whereabouts, is becoming more and more isolated from the family, displays outburts of anger, and is making many poor choices. These teenagers are focused on having fun, they don't seem to care about school, they are very moody, and they have a whole new group of friends that are also going in the wrong direction.

Recent studies prove that the most successful therapeutic intervention for troubled teens is found through a long-term, out-of-home placement similar to what you would find through therapeutic boarding schools. At the C.A.R.E schools and programs our students regain their destiny and begin to see themselves as successful college-bound students. Before enrolling into one of the C.A.R.E. schools our students "lived for the day", refused to take responsibility for their choices, acted as victims, and despised accountibility. After completing our program, students prove to be empathic, caring, willing to serve others without complaint, take responsibility for their choices, and hold themselves and others accountable. Our students regain a vision for their life, a life that has purpose and significance.  Therapeutic boarding schools for troubled boys.

The typical troubled teen that we serve cares only about his/her friends, having fun, and hates to be corrected, disciplined, or held accountable. We describe these troubled teens as a young person who lacks "emotional intelligence". C.A.R.E. therapeutic schools and residential treatment centers are a powerful academic-based boarding program designed to restore troubled teens (boys and girls seperate programs). Our secondary goal is to restore each student back to a powerful and productive future through academic success. 

C.A.R.E. schools and therpaeutic programs are all about "credit recovery" and "grade repair," especially for troubled teenagers who have floundered, and need to get back on track emotionally, spiritually, and academically.
