Discuss & Comment

You may also want to consider ranches for troubled teens or boarding schools with therapy or troubled youth ranches, because military schools are generally not designed for troubled teens. Military schools offer young men the ability to develop academically, personally, and socially into a confident and prepared leader. But military schools are not always the right choice for every young man. While military schools offer structure, and academic and athletic discipline in a controlled and monitored environment that is free from drugs and alcohol, military school is not intended to act as a rehabilitation program. And military schools do not offer the type of behavior counseling support needed to properly rehabilitate troubled young men with criminal pasts who need to reform their belief systems and their conduct. Military schools are looking for young men who want to prepare themselves for a future in a collegiate, military, or professional setting.
