- Beautiful campus - Fast enrollment - No licensed therapists/counselors - Charismatic church services lasting hours at a time w/speaking in tongues, wailing, etc. - Very limited extracurriculars - Almost no communication to parents (exception: weekly report card emailed 5 days after end of period) - Meals not health conscious (or tasty) - Pleas/suggestions for changes sent to board ignored - Letters sent home not mailed promptly - Enrollment dropped from 13 to 8 boys in 8 months; staff turned over approx. 5 positions
I work with the most selfless hard working people on the planet. There is 24/7 staff supervision in both dorms. Children are taught respect and discipline. I have witnessed the effectiveness of this school. We pour our lives into these kids. We see their lives changed for the better! I expect parents of students who have been expelled to not write poor reviews, however I see their disgruntled nature exposing itself.
I would like to let other parents know there is a lack of supervision in boys dorm. Qualified staff member is very lax. Think twice and thoroughly check out everything. There is a list of excellent schools.
New Creations is a private boarding school which has been located in the Richmond, Indiana area since 1969. They also have a Christian school for students local to the Richmond area, though the bulk of their focus is definitely on their residential program. Students come from all over the United States, particularly the states immediately surrounding the school, though they do have some foreign students. Students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and the guy students are kept separate from the girls. I've been on the campus for visits several times over the past several years and have had great interaction with staff and students and the administration. I've been quite impressed, overall. Their property (lake, river, fields, woods) is impressive, and they have growth goals all mapped out in regards to how they hope to develop their property and expand the training they have available. New Creations is very much a Christian institution - in contrast with schools which are merely religious in name only. The administration is very passionate about what they do. It's not an organization in it for the money. The staff I observed were sacrificially serving for the youth.
I attended new creations for almost two years. I went there when i had no high school credits. I stayed a year and a half and completed all three years of highschool on time and in that year and a half. If it wasn't for new creations or the staff that helped me and worked overtime for me to complete school on time i would not have finished highschool. Thank you new creations.. . . -Taylor Best
