Shamrock Educational Academy is a private/non-public boarding school that specializes in working with adolescent males, ages 13-17, who are experiencing difficulties within school and family settings. Our school is designed to meet the needs of teenage boys who have learning disabilities and/or behavioral issues that are preventing them from finding success in school. We offer a highly structured family living environment, combined with a hands on, interactive curriculum, which provides our students with the opportunity to learn responsible behavior, accountability, work ethic and improved family communication skills. We emphasize the importance of family values and relationships. The Carters live at Shamrock Educational Academy, with their children, and interact with the students on a daily basis. Not only do the students at Shamrock hear theories on family values, they work with the family to model new behaviors, including respectful behavior, personal responsibility, participation in family activities, learning a strong work ethic, and doing daily family chores.
