Want a Faith-Based Military School to Help Your Teenage Son? Please Consider Gateway
When given the structure and order of a military school, wayward teen boys become respectful, confident leaders and responsible citizens. Gateway Boys Academy has the same discipline of a military school, but it is more caring. We include an accredited school, a working ranch and farm, counseling and mentoring, competitive team sports, a spiritual emphasis, and hands-on outreach to help disadvantaged people in third-world countries. These are designed to bring change in a boy’s heart and life.
Does your boy act distant? Does he constantly want to be with his friends, away from home? When you ask your child what he has been up to, does he give some vague reply? Does he want to eat in his room all the time instead of with the family? Children are bright – they know that the easiest lie to tell is the one they can avoid having to tell. If your child doesn’t tell you what he has been up to, there’s a good chance he is hiding something.
Does it seem like your child is suddenly a completely different person with a new personality that you don’t like? Has your child suddenly developed a tough-guy attitude? If your child is experimenting with at-risk behavior, there’s a good chance you’ll be seeing these kinds of attitude changes. Often parents just see this as normal teenage behavior and write it off. Don’t make this mistake . . . otherwise, you might overlook one of the most obvious signs.
Like a Military School, It Sets the Stage for a New Start and a New Direction
Gateway Boys Academy helps teen boys from all around the nation. Over 1000 boys from each of the 50 states and internationally have put their lives back on track at Gateway Boys Academy. While you might be searching for a military school program for your son, please take into account that getting away from the peers and culture he’s being influenced by can be exactly what he needs.
Understanding, Compassionate Staff Teach Our Boarding School Students a Better Way to Live
Associated with the nationally recognized Teen Challenge program, Gateway Boys Academy serves teenagers ages 11 to 17 who have gone off-track with life. Our military school is situated in the panhandle of Florida, and our campus is reachable from Miami, Florida and cities throughout the nation. While the program is very disciplined and structured, we believe in demonstrating the love of God to every single cadet, surrounding him with compassionate care. A few of our staff have been in your shoes, either having been through a similar program or having enrolled a child of their own in our military school.
Gateway Paves the Way for Transformation
Teens begin at the lowest rung of our level system. For the initial months, physical exercise, a packed schedule, attention to neatness and chores provide them with structure and establish order in their lives. They realize they can stop struggling against authority and gain confidence by mastering constructive challenges instead of previously destructive activities. Over time, they promote to higher levels, obtaining privileges and responsibilities in the process. The senior behavioral level student is eligible for off-campus sports, outreaches, and travel.
School takes place all year-round as students study at their own pace through high-quality curriculum and certified teachers. Most students who had been failing or falling behind not only get up to date but pull ahead. Gateway meets all established by the State of Florida for high school graduation, and students earn diplomas at the completion of our academic program. Our high standards allow transfers to public institutions or to go on to college or the military.
A New Purpose
We emphasize spiritual life at Gateway Boys Academy. We strive to introduce every cadet to a relationship with Jesus Christ and strive to establish a Godly atmosphere favorable to Christian growth. Students attend group Bible studies, go to chapel twice each week, and spend time with a counselor for individually assigned Bible studies intended for character development.
A Concentration on Family Restoration
At Gateway Boys Academy, we concentrate on family restoration. Four months after the cadet enrolls, parents attend weekend seminars for training about boundaries, strong marriages, and constructive parenting.
Most boys in our program turn from their self-destructive behavior to a life of serving others. If your teenager needs order and discipline to put his life in order, please consider Gateway.
Gateway could be the environment your boy needs to change for the better. Please call or submit our inquiry form for our boarding school today.
