TAKE THE TOUR
See our amazing campus, situated on 48 acres between two pristine lakes, providing a unique, therapeutic environment for the teens.
We integrate outdoor and adventure activities into all aspects of the therapeutic and academic program. Recently constructed or renovated buildings and cozy cabins are a home away from home for boys.
COST OF TREATMENT
Our flat cost of tuition is currently considerably less than other competitive programs. We have generous donors that allow us to subsidize the monthly cost for each student and financial assistance may be available to help reduce a portion of the monthly cost for Minnesota residents who qualify. Currently, we do not offer any free scholarships, but we want to find a solution that will help your son get the help he needs. If we determine this is the right place for your son, we will work with you on a financial plan.
“The staff encourages my son and loves him even in his darkest moments. The staff is positive, encouraging and uplifting with my son. He is blessed to be surrounded by a staff that by example and walk the walk with God.”
