FAQs

Q – WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT THAN OTHER BOARDING SCHOOL PROGRAMS?

A – We use the national Teen Challenge curriculum to support our faith based mission.
We are uniquely blessed with an incredible location and facilities.  The years of experience by our staff members is a valuable piece of the help we can offer at Lakeside Academy.  The atmosphere is collegial and loving, but we still hold students accountable and responsible for their actions.  Staff student relationships aren’t just based on treatment and counseling, but we have fun and enjoy our time with son.

Q – HOW DO I KNOW IF MY SON NEEDS THIS PROGRAM?

A – Before choosing Lakeside Academy, most parents have already tried working with local resources including school, church, and family counselors, etc.  If you have exhausted other options, then Lakeside Academy may be the next step for your son.

Q – HOW DO I KNOW WHICH PROGRAM MY SON NEEDS?

A – If your son is dealing with substance abuse issues, it may be best to express that during your time of inquiry.  We also accept students who are not using substances, but who are exhibiting negative behaviors.  Our program and curriculum are geared to both needs.
