Vision Boys Academy (Missouri)
Vision Boys Academy is a small therapeutic Christian boarding school located in Missouri to help struggling boys ages 8-12.
Vision Boy’s Academy is a small school which allows for much more affordable tuition than most boarding schools. Also, being a smaller school allows staff to work one-on-one with their students. Smaller schools are not a great fit for everyone, but, some boys can greatly benefit being in a smaller, more personal program.
With the rapid changes in today’s society, it is becoming more difficult to live a clean, Godly life. Technology has opened up many doors of entertainment that are easily accessible and for many young people, the lines have become blurred on what is right and wrong.
At the Vision Boys Academy, students will have the opportunity to focus on what’s important in life and receive caring training in becoming Godly young men. Vision Boys Academy believes if your son can learn to confront his problems, whether it’s bitterness, anger, laziness, or disrespect, then they can learn to change these areas of their life.
Vision Boy’s Academy believes a program of consistent daily living can help your son learn to make the right decisions that lead to lasting change and a more fulfilled life. Some boys just simply need to learn the love of Christ. Some need a more concentrated effort on getting caught up in school. Some need to learn the importance of respecting others and themselves. Some just need a change of environment.
Whatever your needs may be, please give us a call, so we can discuss if our program is a good fit for your son. We are here to help!
