Introducing Promise Village, a Professional Therapeutic Boarding School for Boys that Also Believes God Has an Amazing Plan for Your Teenager and Your Family. Though Not Located in North Carolina, It Could Be the Right Choice for Your Boy.
If your family is hurting because of the destructive choices of a teenage boy, the fact that you are looking for a boarding school or residential therapeutic program in North Carolina is a constructive step toward beneficial change. At Promise Village, we have come alongside hundreds of families just like yours, and we recognize your crisis. You hold out hope for a better future for your son. We too perceive the promise in every child, and we can guide him toward his true potential. Although Promise Village is not located in North Carolina, we have seen that getting away from home and being immersed in loving relationships can lead to radically positive changes. While you consider your options in North Carolina, 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 Counseling is Included in Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an outstanding residential treatment center and boarding school for troubled adolescent and teenage boys. Situated on 70 acres of ranch land in Davisburg, Michigan, about a half hour from Flint and 60 minutes from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily accessible from North Carolina and cities across the nation. We use many forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us fashion a program hand-selected for each teen. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work on campus with residents, being positive role models and making the most of everyday “teachable moments.” We call this loving, safe environment the “milieu,” and it simply means that we embrace your child with a positive place that promotes change.
Animal-Assisted Therapy and Activities
Children and teens bond quickly with animals even when they can’t or won’t trust people. Having an animal-friend teaches compassion and opens communication, building relational skills that boys can apply later to human relationships. Dogs and in particular horses are the emphasis of our well-loved 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 former problems with school, and then we lessen those reasons. As they set goals for their lives and see how school helps them meet those goals , they begin to want to perform well academically. With a personalized academic plan for each child, support from Life Coaches and Therapists, and consistent instruction, students show 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 caring for the whole person. Residents work a step at a time through eight “PROMISES” principles designed for building 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 transfer their progress back to the home environment.
