Agape Boarding School, Stockton:
Located in Stockton, Cedar County in southwest Missouri, Agape Boarding School is a non-profit boarding school for troubled and at risk boys in grades 6-12 that specializes in a college preparatory program with AP courses along with a behavior modification program. For the young man whose relationship has been destroyed with his parents, we help to repair and rebuild that relationship. Instead of the student quitting or resorting to the "easy" solution, the staff at Agape work with these young men in order that they may find the right answers to their problems.
We are accredited by the State of Missouri.
Choosing Agape Boarding School:
Enrolling your son in Agape Boarding School is very likely one of the most difficult things you will ever have to do. You have decided to pack up some of his belongings, move him out of your home, and place him in an environment that will be strange and frightening to him. This tears at your emotions and, in fact, breaks your heart. Yet, you know down deep that it must be done if you are ever to realize the dreams you once dearly held for that boy.
Remember that at Agape we are specialised to deal with these traumatising times and have years of experience in helping young men. When your son arrives at Agape Boarding School, he will soon find that he must follow directions. He will learn to obey authority. He will have to wear different clothing than before, and have a haircut to which he most assuredly will object.
Your son will be required to exercise good manners. This, along with the new environment and the different peer pressure, will soon begin to change his behavior. Within just a few weeks he will seem like a different boy. Your son will appear to be totally changed from the troubled boy he was before arriving at Agape Boarding School.
Agape Boarding School's purpose and goal is two-fold. First, we want to work with each individual. We strive to change a rebellious and out of control boy into a God honoring and parent-honoring young man; to be an honest, hard-working asset to the community in which he will live, with God's help. We also desire to help him achieve a personal walk with God.
Our sincere desire and goal is to encourage and nurture respect, self-discipline, leadership, and creativity in the young man's life, whether academic, religious, social, athletic, musical, or extracurricular.
