Admission is open to male students between the ages of 10 and 18 and in grades 6 to post-secondary. Acceptance is not limited on the basis of race, origin, or religion. Students may remain in the program until they turn 22-years old.
Parents, guardians, and representatives of state and local social service agencies and public schools can make an admissions referral. The referral process is not too long and not complicated. In fact, our Admissions team will walk you through the process and state requirements and determine which of our services is best for your situation and meets the needs of your adolescent. All information is kept confidential. Our goal is to help you find the right placement.
There are some exclusionary criteria, which prohibits students for consideration for admission:
Contact an Admissions Director using the Contact us page. Let’s have a conversation before you spend time filling out an application. If placement is appropriate, an application will be emailed. If not, perhaps we can help with alternative recommendations. Information is kept confidential. Our goal is help you find the right placement.
The application is reviewed by an Admissions Director and if appropriateness confirmed, the Admissions Director will arrange for a preplacement interview and campus tour within 24 hours.
The preplacement interview and campus tour completed.
Within 24 hours of that interview, the Admissions Director will obtain a decision from the Admissions Committee and that admissions decision is communicated to the referring agent.
If accepted, an admissions date is coordinated. Our staff will walk you through that process so you know what to expect.
From the moment a new student arrives on campus, they are welcomed and relationship-building starts. The incoming student is introduced to his case manager, clinical counselor, teachers, and peers and the rules and expectations are fully explained to them. We cannot expect all boys to be pleased with their placement, but over time we help them realize their own progress as they begin to understand their trauma and triggers, exercise and practice healthy living and coping skills and are becoming the best version of themselves.
