Christian therapeutic boarding school and boys home for at-risk boys, seen on the Hallmark movie, Safe Harbor. A maritime-based therapeutic boarding school. - Christian boarding schools

Safe Harbor is a lifeline for troubled boys. The Christian boarding school program in Jacksonville, Florida is similar to a therapeutic boarding school, but it uses maritime training as a therapeutic model for helping turn around at-risk teenage boys. Safe Harbor provides a safe, stable, structured, alternative to harsher juvenile programs. Boys in minor trouble with the law or exhibiting bad behavior learn responsibility and experience behavior modification at Safe Harbor through seamanship, mentoring, counseling and a spiritual focus, while also attending our in-house school. The story of the unique aquatic-based boarding school for at-risk boys is featured in the movie Safe Harbor, starring Treat Williams, aired periodically on Hallmark Channel.

Therapeutic boys homes and academies for troubled or misbehaving boys offer behavioral therapy and counseling for at-risk teenage boys, including boys with oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), drug or substance abuse. At-risk boys tend to have difficulty in school, have conflicted relationships with parents and peers, and have repeated problems with the law and authority figures. Rebelliousness, associations with negative peer groups, and incorrigibility are common behaviors among at-risk juveniles. Unacceptable behaviors include property destruction, theft, burglary, violence, fighting, dropping out of school, truancy, alcohol and drug abuse, bullying, gang associations, anger, and generally antisocial behavior. Therapeutic boys homes like Safe Harbor can be a much more effective option than reform schools, foster care programs, or lockup in the juvenile justice system.
