My son is currently enrolled at Agape Boarding School. His two and a half year addiction to drugs led him down a path of self-destruction that he could not control. Everything my husband and I tried failed, because he was still living in the same environment that kept drawing him back into his helpless addiction. My last hope was to remove him completely from the home that he had known all his life. That choice was by far the most heart breaking decision a mother and father can make. My son told me in one of our scheduled phone calls that he didn’t think he would have ever stopped using drugs if we hadn’t sent him there. When I explained to him how hard a decision it was for his Dad and I to make, he told me it was the best decision we had ever made. At that point I knew for sure that Agape Boarding School was the right choice for my son.
I have just returned from Agape for my first visit with my son in four months. And I have to say he is looking good, and is doing well in their program. I can say with out a doubt that Agape has literally saved my sons life. Thank you Agape staff for your vision and heart for lost boys.

Among everything I learned at Agape Boarding School, the lesson I come back to every day is that God has a purpose for my life. I spent so much time wandering and wondering and feeling so lost. Now I know God has a plan for me, I feel confident instead of fearful about the future more »

The changes in our sons life as a result of his time at Agape Boarding School have been phenomenal! His attitude, his walk with Christ, and his demeanor have all improved so drastically! Seeing him is a new experience every time, and a pure joy! We are so glad, we were pointed in the direction of Agape! more »

I found Agape Boarding School through a private school I was looking into for my son, they suggested Agape Boarding school because, while he didn't need a lot of therapy, he did need some. We found their athletic program to be superb, and he excels in it, being more active has curbed some of the issues we say which had a lot of base in ADHD. Agape Boarding School also gave me the opportunity as a parent to stay very involved in his activities with emails and calls regularly, for updates on his progress and we go to see him often. He is showing remarkable improvements academically and in behavior. We are glad we found Agape Boarding School! more »

A youth leader pointed me toward Agape Boarding School for our son, but I didn’t think things could possibly be that bad. When I read the warning signs on the Agape Boarding School website and read about the kinds of kids they work with, I saw our son right there on that page. My eyes were finally opened. I’m thankful for the admissions counselors who talked me through the whole process. Our son has a world of opportunity opening up for him, all because the ministry of Agape Boarding School exists. more »

Our son has been at Agape almost 8 months. We have been to see him twice and have seen a different child from when he left home. The anger is gone, he is doing excellent in school and he seems to be at peace. Of course, he'd rather be at home but Agape' has impressive facilities and the staff appear to be caring but firm. That's what our son needs and, I'm sure, the others as well. We were desperate to get him away from surroundings that were enabling him to do whatever he wanted.We know he is safe and cared for until we can bring him home. more »

Can't say enough good things. Agape has been a Godsend to our family. Our son has been there for over a year and has made good progress. They are loving and firm...something a 15 year old boy needs. It's amazing how all the bad reviews for them are from the kids, and I mean kids, that have stayed there. Of course, they wouldn't like it. But the adults in their lives completely understand they need to be there. Nothing negative to say. We are blessed. more »

I have only ever heard good things about Agape Boarding School. They work really hard to connect with the kids and help them in their spiritual walk. I have no trouble referring friends to this facility. more »

Agapé Boarding School offers a wide variety of opportunities for troubled boys. We help boys get back on the right track toward a bright future. We provide accredited academics, counseling, mentoring, sports, and many of the activities that boys enjoy. We are one of the lowest cost boarding schools for troubled teens in America. Agapé offers the same (if not better) quality and outcomes as the more costly therapeutic boarding schools. In fact, we are about 1/3rd the cost.

Th sprawling ranch campus of Agape Boarding School, located in Missouri, is an amazing place with multiple sports facilities, a huge game room, pool, dozens of horses (including equine therapy), a vast array of exotic and farm animals, a rodeo facility, and so much more. The approach here is very disciplined and structured, but loving, relational and caring. Our belief is that a truly changed heart ultimately comes from a personal relationship with God.
