Agape rescued our son from a terrible cycle of depressive and irresponsible choices. More than just correcting his behavior, they taught him practical coping strategies and healthy ways of reaching out for help. All of the staff at Agape, especially the counselors, are gifted and professional men and women with big hearts for hurting teens. We are grateful for the help they gave us.

My son is making great progress at Agape. You can pay more, but you will not find greater love and committment from the staffs of anywhere else. God''s love and grace are evident in the life of the staffs and my son. From our family to yours....Thank you! Keep up the good work.

Agape Boarding School for us was a clear choice, made sense with their full athletic program, and therapy programs he just fit! and the staff was amazing! So friendly and compassionate! And when he came home, he was positively amazing, well mannered, we are so encouraged by his progress every day!

Our grandson has been here @Agape for almost a year. A year ago he was not the young man he has grown into with the help of many dedicated men here @ Agape. This is an intense program for those just entering in, after several weeks we began to see good changes. In one year he has made up the sophomore semester he had faild and has completed his Junior year and should Graduate this June 2012. To everyone @ Agape thank you and will see you soon!!

Agape has been an amazing support for our family while our son resides there. The love they have for the boys is amazing, as well as the structure. We are so happy with our decision. While he may not be "happy" there, he is content. Most of all, everyone is safe. Thank you Agape for showing the love of Christ and loving our boy while we are far away.
