Residential Boarding Schools for Troubled Teens

RESTORE's consortium of programs are designed to get the struggling student back on track emotionally and academically. The RESTORE schools are best known for providing drug and alcohol treatment, therapeutic intervention, emotional growth, academic restoration (second chance to improve GPA and catch up on credits), and family restoration. Many parents refer to the RESTORE programs as "Therapeutic Boarding Schools”; but in reality they are much more than that. Therapeutic Boarding Schools are academic-based residential treatment programs providing therapy, individual and group counseling, and family restoration. But that is just beginning. Parents and students have reported that the programs represented by the RESTORE team as therapeutic boarding schools as being “life savers”.

A few of the therapeutic boarding schools promoted by RESTOR are designed for gifted, talented, yet highly dysfunctional rebellious kids. The goal is to go beyond therapy and treatment to produce strong college-bound leaders who have experienced the miracle of total restoration. Our goal is to assist troubled teens toward "total restoration", academic excellence, and the restoration of a powerful future.

RESTORE - The Restoration of Hope 

The typical RESTORE student is a young man or young lady who has rejected his/her parental authority and is in crisis. 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 is abusing drugs and alcohol, is sneaking out and lying about their whereabouts, is becoming more and more isolated from the family, displays outbursts of anger, and is making 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.

Struggling BoysRecent 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 RESTORE recommended schools and programs students regain their destiny and begin to see themselves as successful college-bound students. Before enrolling into one of the RESTORE recommended schools students "lived for the day", refused to take responsibility for their choices, acted as victims, and despised accountability.

"After completing a RESTORE recommended programs, students prove to be empathic, caring, willing to serve others without complaint, take responsibility for their choices, and hold themselves and others accountable. Students regain a vision for their life, a life that has purpose and significance."
