School Reviews

  • Recommended August 08, 2014 - I admit, sending our son away because of his destructive behavior seemed like an extreme choice at first. I finally realized that we needed to take action right away if we wanted to avoid extreme consequences later on. ALA turned out to be more than worthy of our trust. They loved our son and knew exactly what he needed to hear. The change in him is remarkable. It was worth every bit of it to have him restored to us this way. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended August 08, 2014 - Thank you, Abundant Life Academy, for helping us with our son. These past couple years have been trying times due to drug use, failing grades in school, and an overall lack of motivation on our sons behalf. Thanks to the training that our son received while at Abundant Life Academy, he is now a contributing member to this family, and society. He is clean and off of drugs as well. Thank you again Abundant Life Academy. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended October 27, 2012 - I''m thankful that God redeemed the time I wasted before I knew Him. Before I came to Abundant Life Academy, I didn''t think I could finish high school, and here I am on my way to college! I can''t wait to find out what else God has in store for me. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended October 06, 2012 - I searched long and hard for something in our own city to help our daughter, because I couldn''t bear the thought of sending her away. But when I found Abundant Life Academy, I realized that the care they offered was more important than my need to hang on to her. Now I can see that the distance is the best possible choice. She has a brand new set of friends, free from the pressures of the kids at school here at home. God is giving her a fresh start. He is the God of second chances, after all. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended October 06, 2012 - I prayed for the first time while at Abundant Life Academy. I never knew how much God loved me until I saw how the counselors and staff here lived. Now God has done something amazing in my life, and I want to help others the way Abundant Life Academy has helped - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended July 09, 2012 - I thank God for all He has given me and the people He has placed in my life at Abundant Life Academy . And I ask God daily to help me to reach my full potential as a daughter, wife, mother, and friend. Thank you, Abundant Life Academy, for my second chance at life. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended June 20, 2012 - One day soon I hope to give back to the program and people who helped save my life, Abundant Life Academy . I am proud to say I want to go back and work there and give hope to the teens there, just like there where staff there to give me hope. I want to help people and someday I hope that God will open up the doors to allow me to do so. For now all I can do is pray for that door to be opened. - Posted by Student/Alumni
