Introducing Promise Village, a Professional Therapeutic Boarding School for Boys that Also Believes God Has a Marvelous Plan for Your Teen and Your Family. Though Not Located in Florida, It Could Be the Right Choice for Your Boy.
If your family is hurting due to the destructive choices of a teenage boy, the fact that you are contemplating a boarding school or residential therapeutic program in Florida is a positive step toward beneficial change. At Promise Village, we have worked with numerous families just like yours, and we recognize your crisis. You dream about a positive future for your son. We also see the promise in every teenager, and we can guide him toward his true potential. Though Promise Village is not located in Florida, we find that getting away from home and being immersed in loving relationships can bring radically positive changes. While you weigh your options in Florida, and wherever else your search might lead you, we hope you will consider Promise Village as a strong choice.
Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Loving, Relational, Home-Like Setting where Therapy is Included in Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an outstanding residential treatment center and boarding school for struggling adolescent and teenage boys. Situated on 70 acres of ranch property in Davisburg, Michigan, about a half hour from Flint and one hour from the Detroit airport, we are easily easy to get to from Florida and cities across the country. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us make a program tailor-made for each child. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work on campus with residents, being positive role models and looking out for everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe environment the “milieu,” and it simply means that we surround your child with an upbeat place conducive to change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond easily with animals even when they can’t or won’t trust people. Making an animal-friend teaches empathy and opens communication, building relational skills that boys can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular horses are the highlights of our enjoyable and professional animal therapy, but our farm also houses 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 name the reasons for their former problems with school, and then we take care of those reasons. As they set objectives for their lives and see how school helps them meet those goals , they begin to want to perform well academically. With an individualized academic plan for each student, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students have steady, if not drastic, improvement.
Spiritual Development and PROMISES for Character Growth
Promise Village is a non-denominational faith-based program. We address spiritual needs as part of treating the whole child. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for integrating personal values into their lives. In three stages, children and teens build on their strengths to implement the values in their own lives; then they begin to help and serve their peers; and finally they practice what they have learned in the home environment.
