Tried and True Ways to Work With Teens

Yes, There Is A Solution To The Problem…And We’re Enrolling For Fall!

Your student doesn’t fit the typical boarding school model. They have anxiety about school, some bad academic experiences, and a fair amount of frustration about finishing high school. They are very bright, intelligent, and have a lot of potential, but they do not fit the typical boarding school mold. Instead of being a positive for them, school is now what causes them stress, and may even be causing friction at home.

To combat the anxiety and the frustration, our students stay in a family home with house parents who are experienced educators and caring parents and grandparents. Our teachers work with students individually, adapting and augmenting their material to help their students.

Our classrooms are small, likely smaller than your office at work, and our class sizes are typically no more than 3 or 4 students.

For us, tutoring is something we do daily with each student. Other schools claim to focus on the individual, but we actually do it. We don’t even have a classroom big enough to fit the typical 30 students you’ll find in almost all other schools.

We use our 15-acre working ranch to let these kids relax, blow off steam, and learn to work in the old-fashioned ways. They get to know animals, get dirty, and learn to enjoy it all.

There are a lot of boarding schools out there, but only one like Fieldstone Academy.

We are now accepting applications for Fall Enrollment.
