Introducing Promise Village, a Professional Therapeutic Boarding School for Boys that Also Trusts God Has a Wonderful Plan for Your Child and Your Family. Though Not Located in South Carolina, It Could Be the Right Choice for Your Boy.
If your family is hurting due to the out-of-control choices of a teenage boy, the fact that you are searching for a boarding school or residential therapeutic program in South Carolina is a constructive step toward transformation. At Promise Village, we have worked with numerous families just like yours, and we recognize your crisis. You believe in a better future for your son. We also see the promise in every teenager, and we can help him unlock his true potential. Even though Promise Village is not located in South Carolina, we find that getting away from home and being surrounded by loving relationships can bring radically positive changes. While you consider your options in South Carolina, and anywhere 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 Caring, Relational, Home-Like Setting where Counseling is Included in Every Aspect of Daily Life
Promise Village is an extraordinary residential treatment home and boarding school for at-risk adolescent and teenage boys. Located on 70 acres of ranch land in Davisburg, Michigan, about 30 minutes from Flint and one hour from the Detroit airport, we are easily easily accessible from South Carolina and cities across the country. We use diverse forms of therapy in an eclectic model that lets us fashion a program tailor-made for each teen. One of our key strengths is our Life Coaches, staff who live and work on campus with residents, serving as 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 a positive 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 compassion and breaks down walls, building relational skills that teens can transfer later to human relationships. Dogs and especially 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 children and teens figure out the reasons for their previous problems with school, and then we mitigate those reasons. As they set objectives for their lives and see how school helps them meet those goals , they begin to want to do well in school. 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 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 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 encourage their peers to do so; and finally they transfer their progress back to the home environment.
