Treasure Coast Academy

A Florida Adventure-Based Boarding School for Struggling Boys

The Ranch for Boys

Treasure Coast Boys Academy is an alternative boarding school designed to bring about a change in behavior and attitude in boys ages 12-17 who are struggling with life-controlling issues, misbehavior, school expulsion, or learning issues. Our Teen Challenge program features counseling and mentoring designed to turn problematic boys into respectful young men. The campus on Florida’s Treasure Cost includes everything a boy needs to learn to be happy and learn more constructive ways to think and behave. Treasure Coast Academy activities include swimming, fishing, surfing, soccer, basketball, horseback riding, and more. We know you treasure your boy, and we’ll treasure him as well. He’ll receive counseling, adventure, and a first-class education. Take advantage of this life-changing opportunity for your son at this world-class Teen Challenge academy!

The staff works with each boy in cooperation with and participation of their family, bringing to the table a vast amount of experience. The therapeutic team helps repair the significant catalysts in each boy’s life that are bringing on their poor choices and self-destructive attitudes and behaviors.

Education is a priority at Treasure Coast Academy. Leadership skills, developing integrity and the importance of work are also learned through indoor and outdoor responsibilities.

Residents are encouraged to challenge and encourage each other to live out their faith in everything they do and say. Residents pray for one another and challenge each other through positive peer pressure to walk in the righteousness of God, which is demonstrated through the Godly character traits such as purity, honesty, and generosity.


The program believes that the first change must be a heart change… leading an out-of-control teenager to a second chance at attaining a bright future of successful living.


ADVENTURE OUTINGS

The Ranch for BoysEach student at our ranch has an opportunity to spend time hiking, canoeing, camping, and other active outdoor activities.  It is through these fun outings that we can get to the root of the issues in a boy’s life. It’s an easy place to talk and share hurts and pains; then the campfire that evening gives opportunity to further talk and pray for one another. These trips are memory makers that last a lifetime!

EDUCATION

Treasure Coast Academy provides focused and individualized academic attention for the students in its care. Education goes on and credits are earned, but education is not the program’s primary focus. Character, integrity, hard work, and respect for others are what we concern ourselves most with. If those attributes are in place, education is more easily accomplished on campus and when the boy returns home.

INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP THERAPY

The Ranch for BoysTherapy is ongoing – all day, every day. Individual counseling sessions are not as frequent as the many 10-15 minute life coaching that takes place during school, work, or a sporting event. As was once said, the outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man. A simple horse ride can provide a life changing conversation in a young man’s life. The same can be said for a day on the lake fishing with a good mentor.

FAMILY INVOLVEMENT

Treasure Coast Academy understands that success in life transformation depends on a strong loving family atmosphere when going home. Unconditional love with clear well defined boundaries are just a few of the family dynamics we focus on teaching the family while the student is here.

Ranch for Boys specializes in helping boys who are exhibiting the following:

  • skipping school, resulting in failing grades
  • abnormal lack of ambition and depression
  • outbursts of anger and destruction of home property
  • absence from the home for extended periods of time
  • stealing from family members
  • poor choice of friends and suspected drug use

Lives are transformed by the power of God that is stronger than the bonds of rebellion or addiction. They help the total person with spiritual, emotional, physical, social and educational challenges to prepare them for their new life.

The Ranch for Boys

Emotionally: The healing of the past is necessary. Bible studies enhance mental growth and serve as a foundation for creating new lives.

Physically: They care for the physical needs of the students.

Socially: Students learn to work through relationship problems with their peers and with their families at home. They will learn to apply the character qualities they learn in the classroom to their everyday lives.

Educationally: Treasure Coast Academy has developed a curriculum specifically designed to teach students about God and help them develop the skills required for them to become successful Christians.

Gateway Academy At our military-like boarding school for struggling teenage boys 11-17, discipline and structure pave the way for transformation and empowerment, instilling responsibility, leadership, and respect within a rigorous, supportive environment. Here, challenges become growth opportunities as each young man learns to navigate his journey with resilience and integrity, forging a path toward personal success and honor. Our sports program will challenge teens and build teamwork and life discipline values. Gateway Academy is an excellent opportunity to impact your teen for a lifetime based on the time-tested Teen Challenge approach, which has helped teens and families for over a half-century.

Gateway is made up of caring, concerned staff, many who have been in your situation with their own children. Their purpose in life is to help self-destructing teenage boy’s turnaround and begin looking at life differently. Boys are given a new purpose, a new drive, and a new passion to be a better person and to serve others.

If you could see the before and after pictures of boys who have come through Gateway’s program, you would see a striking change to confident, happy young men. You would see selfish boys with a chip on their shoulders that are now ready to give the shirt off their back to someone in need. You would see boys without purpose who now have solid goals and direction for their life.

GatewayGateway is not new at this. They know what works, and we see lives changed every day. They’re not making robots out of these kids, but building up young men with confidence, who thoughtfully consider their options, having learned that making bad choices leads to bad outcomes. Developing leaders of integrity and men of strength from foolish boys who were weak and headed for disaster is what Gateway does.

Seldom is there opportunity for a young man to lead five, ten, twenty or more peers while in high school. Young men at Gateway can reach positions of responsibility and learn leadership skills, which often transfer to college and the world beyond.

Engaging academics in a structured environment is often easier for most, and it helps young men see a brighter future in terms of applying to college. Challenging a young man while his thoughts are big and his future is open is a wonderful part of what Gateway does.

ACTIVITIES

Participation in athletics is strongly encouraged at Gateway. Sports teach teamwork and camaraderie. These are invaluable interpersonal skills for a world absorbed by computers and gadgets. Knowing how to work with others is a critical skill taught by our military school.

The Gateway Academy Lions sports program encompasses both varsity and junior varsity basketball and baseball, and soccer. A recently completed maple-wood gym floor has allows Gateway to host games with our competing teams in the Panhandle Christian Conference.
