Our list includes all all the best girls therapeutic boarding schools and the best all-boy therapeutic boarding schools. This therapeutic boarding school directory can help your teenager who is defiant, breaking laws, or otherwise behaving badly. Misbehavior is common among teenagers troubled with emotional issues or trauma. Such troubled teens may appear to be arrogant and angry, but they can have deep psychological issues. While these programs are not military schools, military schools are often a parent’s first thought when their boy is in trouble. Military schools can change teen behavior temporarily (out of fear), but lasting change rarely happens. Military high schools fail to uncover and work on the core issues of why a boy is misbehaving or self-destructing. For a troubled boy, rather than seeking military schools, better help can be found from therapeutic programs like these.
