You may also want to consider boys ranches or schools for troubled teens or best boarding schools or therapeutic boarding schools or boys homes, because military schools are generally not designed for troubled teens. Military schools develop individuals academically, personally, and socially into confident and prepared leaders. A military academy or service academy (in the United States) is an educational institution which prepares candidates for service in the officer corps. It normally provides education in a military environment, the exact definition depending on the country concerned. Academies prepare cadets for commissioning into the armed services. There are two types of military academies: national and state/private-run. Graduates from national academies are typically commissioned as officers in the country’s military. The new officers usually have an obligation to serve for a certain number of years. In some countries all military officers train at the appropriate academy, whereas in others only a percentage do and the service academies are seen as institutions that supply service-specific officers within the armed forces.
