Why Choose Sundance Canyon Academy?
There are several reasons to select Sundance Canyon Academy over military schools in Mississippi. It’s important to understand the difference between therapeutic boarding schools and military schools before making a decision as important as enrolling your teen in a program. Military schools are generally high academic programs designed to prepare teens to become officers, and are long-term boarding schools for teens with specific career goals. The military schools do not have therapeutic components and are not designed to help teens who have mental health or behavioral issues.
Therapeutic boarding schools like Sundance Canyon Academy, on the other hand, are long-term boarding schools that blend therapy, academics and recreation to create a program where boys who don’t fit into traditional schools can thrive. The environment is designed to support and build up boys, rather than push them through a rigorous system. Therapeutic boarding schools also have professional staff, faculty and administrators on staff that are specially trained to deal with troubled teens. That’s why parents should choose Sundance Canyon Academy over military schools in Mississippi.
Benefits of Boarding School Over Military Schools in Mississippi
Too many parents believe that military school or teen boot camps are the best way to teach troubled teens to “shape up” and “learn some respect.” Unfortunately, these programs don’t get to the root of the child’s issues and therefore healing is never going to happen. A program like Sundance Canyon Academy is a much better way to teach boys how to find success despite the challenges they face. As they heal and learn and grow, they will come to respect others and develop healthy relationships with those around them.
Here’s a list of why military schools may not be the best option for troubled teens and why places like Sundance Canyon Academy are:
- Military schools don’t provide troubled boys with regular individual and group therapy.
- Military schools aren’t interested in getting to the bottom of a boy’s issues, just in making sure they behave.
- Military schools do emphasis structure and rules like boarding schools do, but they don’t have successful long-term results.
- Therapeutic boarding schools are focused on helping teens heal from the inside out.
- Therapeutic boarding schools help with academics, like credit repair, tutoring and even earning a high school diploma.
- Therapeutic boarding schools focus on teaching life skills to students so they can become independent.
Rather than harsh treatment and strict physical punishments, your teen boy will do much better in a safe, secure and structured environment where all his needs are being met. Sundance Canyon Academy is a fine alternative to military schools for boys.
Struggles That Mississippi Teens Face Without Boarding Schools
