Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Loving, Relational, Home-Like Setting where Therapy is Part of Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an extraordinary residential treatment center and boarding school for at-risk boys ages 10-17. Situated on 70 acres of ranch land in Davisburg, Michigan, about 30 minutes from Flint and an hour from the Detroit airport, we are easily easy to get to from Columbia, Maryland and cities across the country. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program hand-selected for each boy. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work directly with residents, serving as positive role models and looking out for everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe atmosphere the “milieu,” and it simply means that we surround your child with a positive place where change can happen.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond quickly with animals even if they can’t or won’t accept people. Having an animal-friend teaches empathy and breaks down walls, building relational skills that teens can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular horses are the emphasis of our popular and professional animal therapy, but our farm also includes exotic birds; outdoor cats; miniature goats, horses, and donkeys; llamas; and a friendly cow.
Boarding School for Boys that Includes Improving Academic Performance and Motivations
We help children and teens identify the reasons for their previous troubles in school, and then we mitigate those reasons. As they set goals for their lives and see how school makes those goals possible , they have a new reason to perform well academically. With an individualized academic plan for each child, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students have steady, if not radical, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based organization. We address spiritual needs as part of caring for the whole individual. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for introducing personal values into their lives. In three stages, children and teens build on their strengths to make the values true in their own lives; then they encourage their peers to do so; and finally they transfer their progress back to the home environment.

Columbia is a planned community that consists of ten self-contained villages, located in Howard County, Maryland, United States. It began with the idea that a city could enhance its residents’ quality of life. Creator and developer James W. Rouse saw the new community in terms of human values, not just in terms of economics and engineering. Opened in 1967, Columbia was designed to not only eliminate the inconveniences of then-current subdivision design, but also eliminate racial, religious, and income segregation.
