Our son has been at Agape for 4 months now. I`ve just visited him, and am very pleased with his progress and attitude.He is a different person already, but I realize he will need more time to complete his journey to a happier and healthier place.Thanks to everyone at Agape!

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.

sending our child to Agape was definitely one of the hardest decisions we've ever had to make in our lives. Howeve,r we are very glad that we found this place particularly and connected with so many staff members and made lifelong friends. Our son graduated high school from this facility and had he not been there he probably would have never seen a diploma. We are grateful for their dedication to each and every child that enters the door here. They lead by Christian example and make sure that is instilled in every child daily along with schoolwork. Ultimately the decision is the child's on whether they want to overcome and succeed. Agape was just the right connection to make this possible for our son. Thanks 1 million to Agape' and many many individuals that my son still talks about and looks up to daily!! You are awesome!!!!

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.

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.
