Our son had an amazing experience at Agape. It was not always an easy path for him but the changes we saw in his life over the two years he was there were definitely life changing. Agape was what our son needed at that time in his life to give him options and opportunities going forward. Agape has truly been a blessing to our family. more »

We are very grateful for your positive influence on our son. He has been doing great since coming back home. The best testimony to your influence is how much our son talks about the different staff members and visiting speakers and other students. He wants to call back and visit. Thank you very much for all your hard work. We thank the Good Lord for all. And are so happy to have our son home. more »

Our son was at Agape for one year. He certainly appreciated it even though he didn't like it. He came to respect & love the staff. We have the utmost appreciation & respect for the staff in what they have to go through & deal with. They truly love these kids with an Agape love. Your son will come home a different person than he was when he arrived. Of course, it's ultimately his choice. Thank you Agape! more »

My son was in a very dark place before Agape, but the staff was able to help him rebuild his self confidence. He now has a much healthier attitude and is planning for his future. more »

My son's experience at Agape was life changing! He entered the school 15 months ago angry, defiant, belligerent, disrespectful, etc... He pretty much didn't care if he destroyed his own life or those in his family. Now, he is home. He is not perfect but he has learned respect for authority, respect for others property and has the desire to do right. He is will to TRY! The time for my daughters and I do heal was priceless and the life lessons my son learned made the school worth it's weight in gold. Thank you Agape! Thank you to all the staff who poured into my son and gave him what he needed and thank you Lord who answered this desperate mom's plea for help! more »

Staff were compassionate, respectful, and helpful. My son learned to deal with his anger and frustration, in addition to recognizing the need to avoid negative influences. He is now a self-starter, relying on his own abilities and skills. The horse class was truly a gift because it taught him patience, self-reliance, and compassion.
Even though the staff have a challenging job, they always demonstrated concern for the boys at Agape.

Our son has come home a changed boy. He has recommitted his life to Christ while in Agape Boarding School. Relationships with his siblings have been restored and strengthened. He has good work ethics now. He works hard on our family farm without expecting pay. He acknowledges that he needs to get his energy out so that he can better concentrate and focus. His new talent since he came home is cooking. He has been cooking a big breakfast for his family just like he enjoyed on Saturdays at Agape. He serves a nice big pancake with sweet treats inside! more »

Agape Boarding School was our last hope to save our son's future. As a parent you never want to be in this position where you have to send your son away in order to keep him safe as well as the rest of your family. I knew we had a good boy who had lost his way and Agape helped him find his way back God, to us, and remember all those important values he was taught. We would recommend Agape to anyone that is in a similar situation. My son has told me that he is going to miss Agape dearly. He made life long friends and the staff truly take an interest in helping these boys grow. God is working through the Clemensen family, entire staff, and the boys in a way that keeps me in awe. Thank you for everything you have done for us! more »

It has been my privilege for many years now to preach to the boys at Agape Boarding School. It is very evident that the entire staff takes their job very seriously and they have a genuine love for each and every boy in the academy. I'm thrilled for what the boys are taught in the classroom but even more thrilled to know the Bible is the main text book being taught here. I sure would of saved myself and my family a whole lot of grief and heartache if I would of known of Agape when I was a teenager. Thank God for this wonderful place. more »

Our son was already 17 when he began his stay at Agape. He had started his senior year failing school and in trouble with the police. A judge gave him the option of attending Agape or going through the legal system. He chose the school. He didn't like it much the first few months, but slowly began to see the benefits of being there. He has completed his studies, graduated and best of all got baptized. He has been home for about 5 weeks and is adjusting well. He is getting his driver's license, a car and has been working. He plans to enroll in a carpentry apprenticeship program this fall. The school and staff kept in us informed of our son's progress. They did wonders with him in just 8 months. We enjoyed the several visits to the campus. We had been praying for many months for an answer to the pain of watching our son spin out of control. Agape was just the answer we were looking for, praise God. more »

My son came home with respect for authority he desperately needed and a closer relationship with Christ. He can also maintain self control when he is becoming upset and appears to let the little things go. more »

Agape was a blessing to my family. My son was very difficult, extremely defiant and I thought I had lost all control to which the relationship would never be repaired. I was a devastated mother. Agape did a 100 % turn around. My son was there for 18 months and he was able to work on himself in an environment that is conducive for change especially without outside forces that can be a deterrent for change when at home. The men that work there at Agape are a true asset, and role models for these young boys who really need their guidance. I couldn't say enough wonderful things about Agape, and my heart will always be indebted to them!!! more »

I came in to contact with Agape Boarding School in 2010 while attending their July 4th festivities. Since that time I have been to Agape on numerous occasions. Where I have also been met by a staff member who works to care for my needs. I have had the privilege to work alongside the men as they have worked with the student body. I have witnessed firsthand their love for the students as well as their desire to help them become the young men that God created them to be. I high recommend Agape Boarding School. Brother Clemensen and the staff have a heart for the LORD and the work that God has given them. It is a first class facility, a first class program, run in a first class way. more »

we sent our son to Agape in January of his freshman year. He was out of control and ungovernable. The staff at Agape are amazing. The school exceeded our expectations and turned our son around. He just graduated in may 2017. We highly recommend Agape. more »

As a single parent, one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make was to send my son to a boarding school. Although he was not into drugs or gangs, he was having severe problems with his temperament and going to school. Agape taught him self discipline and a willingness to take on responsibilities. Now, he is working toward graduation and his future is looking bright. The staff have become like a second family to my son. 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.
