Introducing Promise Village, a Professional Therapeutic Boarding School for Boys that Also Trusts God Has a Marvelous Plan for Your Child and Your Family. Though Not Located in Georgia, It Could Be the Right Choice for Your Boy.
If your family is hurting because of the out-of-control choices of a teenage boy, the fact that you are contemplating a boarding school or residential therapeutic program in Georgia is a positive step toward beneficial change. At Promise Village, we have come alongside hundreds of families just like yours, and we comprehend your crisis. You believe in a productive future for your son. We too see the promise in every teen boy, and we can guide him toward his true potential. Even though Promise Village is not located in Georgia, we have seen that getting away from home and being immersed in loving relationships can produce radically positive changes. While you consider your options in Georgia, and wherever else your search might take you, we hope you will consider Promise Village as a strong choice.
Life in the Milieu: Promise Village is a Caring, Relational, Home-Like Place where Therapy is Included in Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an outstanding residential treatment home and boarding school for struggling boys ages 10-17. Situated on 70 acres of ranch property in Davisburg, Michigan, about 30 minutes from Flint and 60 minutes from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily accessible from Georgia and cities across the nation. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us devise a program perfectly suited for each teen. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work in the home 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 embrace your teen with an upbeat place that promotes change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond readily with animals even if they can’t or won’t accept people. Making an animal-friend teaches empathy and opens communication, building relational skills that teens can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular horses are the emphasis 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 boys figure out the reasons for their previous troubles in school, and then we lessen those reasons. As they set goals for their lives and see how school makes those goals possible , they gain motivation to improve their grades. With an individualized academic plan for each boy, 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 look at 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, boys build on their strengths to learn 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.
Finding the Best Therapeutic Program for Your Child
