Before I went to WCA I didn't understand how to control myself. I had authority problems, anger issues, focus problems, and never trusted anyone. The staff at WCA prayed with me, talked with me, and most of all spent time with me. They took the time to learn me, and help me to learn who I was. Wolf Creek Academy saved my life and made me the man I am today. Thank you to all the staff, a forever grateful student.
I found WCA during a time of desperation; when my 14 year old was heading down a path that I believe would have ultimately found her in the kind of trouble a parent can`t `fix.` ~ She is 7 months into the program and her personal growth has been tremendous. She is pleasant and happy, more self-assured, accepts limitations without complaint, and truly enjoyable to be around. No doubt a different/deeper kid. The best part is that she sees the change in herself and knows she`s where she needs to be right now. It`s not always easy but a worthwhile investment for our family and her future, for sure.
WCA receives my highest recommendations for its successes in recovery from teen issues and for its superb academic program. Our daughter had lost all interest in academics before Wolf Creek Academy. After her time at WCA with its proven self-paced academic system, she returned to an amazing levels of motivation and success in all aspects of learning. I cannot say enough good things about the academic program, and about all aspects of this outstanding school.
Thank you, Wolf Creek Academy, for saving our son. From the beginning, you gave us new hope. Now our son is happy and whole, doing well in school and enjoying life again. You have not only rescued him from a destructive past but given him bright hope for a positive future. Thank you.
One of the hardest things I ever had to do was admit I needed help raising my own son. There was a season of guilt, of asking myself, "What did I do wrong?" Sending him to Wolf Creek Academy was one thing I did right. My teen accepted teaching from them that he refused to hear from me, plus he had so many opportunities there that he would never have had at home. Wolf Creek Academy is a valuable resource for parents. Sending our son to Wolf Creek Academy brought our family back together
1. Our daughter came to us one night with a desperate look in her eyes, and we knew we needed to get help. We searched long and hard before sending her to Wolf Creek Academy. At the first parent weekend, I knew as soon as I saw her that it was worth it all. The expression on her face was the most peaceful I have seen her look in a long time. We feel hope again. We are so thankful for Wolf Creek Academy
