Our son has been at Midwest Academy for almost 9 months now. He is excelling in school and in his outlook on life. Thank God we found Midwest, it is an excellent school for troubled teens. It is a safe and wonderful school with incredible staff full of great knowledge on dealing with these kids. I would and do highly recommend this school.

For our son, this school is both life changing and life saving. He has made significant and profound changes in both his behavior and his thought processes. The staff is knowledgeable, professional and genuinely dedicated to providing the care and support that our son needs in order to get his life back on a positive track. I would highly recommend MWA to any parent.
