I wouldn't trust a word any of these people say. The staff is abusive. They have a padded room they take students and "punish" them. They work them outside in the summer heat while only allowing five seconds of water drinking out of a hot spigot. They allowed abuse amongst their own staff of underaged boys. They are unkind, force their beliefs upon the boys, won't let them call home and censor every letter. Parents, send your kids elsewhere. Actually, just be parents and raise your kids. You don't need abusive men raising your sons. They'll turn out to hate God more than when they were sent there. Those they manage to brainwash will tell you otherwise, but as someone who has had to clean up the path of destruction they caused in my loved ones life, I would not suggest them at all. more »

Agape helped this dad out when my wife passed away and son was getting into trouble. Not sure if I should have let him get into trouble with law, as that is what happened in spite of Agape. I will always appreciate Agape, as my son will probably always hate you. Thanks, Dean Wilson more »

I recommend this school to any parent with their trouble teens. The kids may be angry for being send there and tell upu ...ot is a waste of time because they choose not to change or stay in their addiction or rebellion! But as a parent, I know I have done my job to give my son a chance to change and show love sacrificially. The staffs at Agape are wise and firm! They are not easy to be manipulated by these kids. Let's face it, most of us would not send our children to the boarding school if they were in thir perfect obedience. Trust God in using this place to change our next generation for Jesus. My son had received support long after he graduated from Agape. It may not be perfect and never am I! It is a good place! Trust God He will use your boy! more »

I visited Agape during the Thanksgiving Holiday in 2014 and enjoyed the friendliness yet professionalism of each staff member. The young men are surrounded by people who want the best for them. Great place! more »

Although our son was not a good fit for the program because of his severe destructive behavior, the staff was supportive and encouraging and went to great lengths to help our family. They even helped to find alternative placement for him which was not easy. more »

Without Agape, I don't where I'd be, but I know it wouldn't be good. I arrived in July 1998, and I graduated in 2001. Agape changed the course of my life for good. more »

Agape Boarding School saved the lives of my son, my husband and me. Agape embraced our son, filled him with the Holy Spirit, gave us a break from the chaos of the life we were living with our son and an opportunity to renew our marriage and relationship. Our son will graduate in a week, we will bring him home and his new life will begin thanks to Agape. His choices will be shaped by the excellent role modeling of manhood that the staff at Agape demonstrates on a daily basis, not through their words, but by their actions. We will forever be indebted to Agape for their mission and willingness to turn the lives of these young men around. more »

My grand son is enrolled at Agape Boarding School. So far, so good--we can see a change in his thinking and I can only thank this School for that. Thank you. Thank you. I pray for complete success, realizing the difficulty of the Teen Years in general. Just knowing that he is not alone and that the staff constantly monitors these young men is such a relief. more »

It has been a while since I left Agape, but I wanted some time to think before I could say anything. My experience at Agape was amazing. It's crazy how you can actually use what you learned at Agape in real life situations. Learning about God and his word has really helped me out in the "real" world. There were points in my stay where I was hopeless and believed my stay was pointless but now that I'm standing where I am today, I finally see the work God has done. I constantly...
See More think back to situations or lessons that I learned from when I was there and I have to admit that I am blessed beyond belief. Agape didn't just save my life, it opened my eyes. God is truly using the men and women there to change boy's lives. I don't believe that all or even most boys leave "fixed", as men, or as saints, but Agape does provide all the tools young men need to lead a successful, healthy, and productive life; if they are so willing. It is no doubt that the Hand of God is on this Boarding School. May they never become discouraged, and continue to change boy's lives; one boy at a time.

As a former student I can tell u first hand that I never felt closer to God at anypoint in my life. We may not agree on every little thing but that's life it happens.
Before I came to Agape
I was a14yr old juvenile who didn't give a "hoot" about "hoot".
When I left 22months later I was a God fearing yes sir yes ma'am respectable young man.
Id like to thank bro scott and bro jim blake for helping me learn perseverence hard work and respect.
Yea it sucked having to do 1,000 ...
See More pushup for something I did wrong but it taught me self discipline. Which I can still do 1,000 in just over an hr and a half more then 10years later.
Is this place anyplace on earth? I guarantee you though if u leave your child here for over the recommended year they will come back a changed man for the better

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.
