Teen Challenge Programs for Boys – Introducing Gateway Boys Academy
Gateway is a Teen Challenge program unlike any other. At Gateway we have an accredited school, as well as a working ranch and farm. We provide counseling and mentoring, competitive team sports, a spiritual emphasis, and hands-on outreach to help disadvantaged people in third-world countries. All of these are designed to bring change in a boy’s heart and life.
Teen Challenge Sets the Stage for a New Start and a New Direction
The Teen Challenge Gateway Boys Academy serves boys from around the country. Over 1000 boys from each of the 50 states and other countries have put their lives back on track at Gateway Boys Academy. Even though you might be searching near your own home for a discipline school for your son, take into consideration that a prolonged separation from the peers and culture he’s being influenced by could be just the break he needs.
Teen Challenge Teaches a Better Way to Live
As part of the internationally recognized Teen Challenge program, Gateway Boys Academy serves boys ages 12 to 17 who have chosen a dangerous path in life. While the program is very disciplined and structured, we focus on demonstrating the love of God to every student, surrounding him with compassionate care. A number of our staff have been in your situation, either having completed a similar program themselves or having enrolled a teen in our school in the past.
For Boys, Teen Challenge Paves the Way for Total Transformation
For the initial months, physical exercise, a packed schedule, attention to neatness and chores give them structure and establish order in their lives. They learn to stop struggling against authority and start to grow in confidence by mastering challenges that are constructive instead of their previously destructive activities. In time, they promote to higher levels, obtaining privileges and responsibilities along the way.
Academic Success for Boys through Teen Challenge
Our school operates year-round as students study at their own pace through high-quality curriculum. Certified teachers give tutorial help as required. With this system, most students who have been failing or falling behind not just catch up but pull ahead. We meet all qualifications by the State of Florida for high school graduation, and students earn diplomas when they graduate our academic program. Our high standards allow transfers to public institutions or to go on to college or the military.
Teen Challenge Focuses on a New Spiritual Relationship, Direction, and Purpose
Spiritual life forms a large part of life at all Teen Challenge programs, including Gateway Boys Academy. Our staff model their relationship with Jesus Christ and strive to create a Godly atmosphere helpful to Christian growth. Boys attend group sessions, go to chapel two times a week, and work with a counselor for individually assigned sessions meant for character growth.
Concentration on Family Restoration
Teen Challenge concentrates on family restoration. After four months, parents begin attending weekend conferences to learn about boundaries, healthy marriages, and positive parenting. Many boys in our program turn from their self-destructive behavior to a desire for serving others. If your son needs order and discipline to put his life in order, please consider Gateway, a Teen Challenge Program. Gateway can be the sort of environment your boy needs to create a change for the better.
