Wonderful work done at the Advent Home Learning Center, where young boys can reboot their lifes, get a fresh start using the Bible as their guide, learning to take responsibility for their actions, learning a trade and finishing school, gardening and learning a strong work ethic in a country settings, you cannot get this anywhere else.This school allows these boys to start life and school over, repair damaged relationships at home and build trust. Great food and lots of fun opportunities to participate in church.
Without Advent Home, this special school, my at-risk son would drop out and not be able to complete his high school. I commend these teachers and staff for their dedication and commitment.
A great country environment with such an awesome, holistic program for young men. The diet, fresh air, exercise and spiritual environment is such a benefit, it is ashamed that more schools don't incorporate these type of principles for young people.
This school changes lives for students and their families because it focuses on character development. This school transforms not just the mind but the whole being!
This is the place for your son if he is acting out in school, home and you feel totally out of control. My son has ADHD. He was in so much trouble and failing in school. With the concern of dedicated staff willing to give up their lives and work with the boys, my son is getting his school work finished in a timely manner and correctly. The boys learn to work and to enjoy it. They can learn skills for life regardless what field of work they choose for their life. Thank you Advent Home.
Advent Home has the most dedicated Christian staff, so grateful that our son can be at this school. They not only teach acedemically but also give our boys a good work ethic to take with them when they mature into young adults. The boys work outside in the organic gardens, and have playtime every day with staff members present at all times. They have fun days for the boys, Family Forum every 3 months, where parents can interact and encourage each other in their boys growth.
The Science teacher is especially amazing :) The staff members put their whole hearts into their jobs.
My son's school is Advent Home Learning Center. Recently spent a parent student weekend conference and Labor day picnic. What a wonderful christian, caring, and loving atmosphere. The staff is a dedicated and genuinely interested in the affairs of the students and the parents and the whole family structure. Within 3 months , I can see the change in our son . May God continue to bless this school and all the students and families involved.
Advent Home, it's a great school, the teachers are very dedicated and children learn in a Christian enviroment. My son was able to make changes thanks to this institution.
Advent Home Learning Center is unique in many ways. It is designed to help teen boys with learning differences and having behavior issues. Advent Home is a minimum distraction environment, located in a country setting, bordered on one side by a beautiful, peaceful river. Well equipped school for grades 6 - 12 is on the property. We also have a hands-on work education program and recreation time. A team of caring Resident Care staff, teachers, counselors and administrative staff all work together with the students to help them overcome difficulties with academics as well as personal relationships and interpersonal issues. We have four Family Forum weekends each year where parents and families come and participate in single family counseling sessions designed to talk about core issues within the family and learn how the student is doing overall. This is very popular with the parents - a hands-on time with their sons - time to talk and resolve old issues. This is a place for second chances, for families to bond together and become a real family again.
This is a school that is concerned with the students. The students that come to this school have behavior problems such as defiance,disobedience,difficulty focusing,not wanting to go to school. This school provides for the students to change from this negative behaviors. Their main emphasis is to teach them respect,obedience in other words to become mature fuctioning human beings. It gives the students the tools to grow spiritually,intellectually and physically.
Advent Home is truly a place where boys and young men with emotional problems and high risk behaviors can be rehabilitated, receive a good academic education and develop an abiding relationship with the Lord.The staff are all missionary workers who have chosen to delicate their time to work with these boys in need so it is not about monetary gain for them.It is about saving souls for Christ.
Before sending our son to Advent Home, we had no idea how to get him the help that he needed. He was too smart to fit into traditional support institutions for youth with disabilities, but too badly behaved to fit into traditional schools in the education system. At the Advent Home Junior Academy, the outstanding teachers and staff, worked with him to come up with a costumized educational and behavioral approach that has greatly assisted our son in his learning. In matter of fact, thanks to the Advent Home Junior Academy, our son has completed his GED and is projected to graduate from their "Maturation Therapy" program in December of 2013. The Advent Home Junior Academy has been an answer to prayer for our son and we are very grateful that it exist. Were it not for the Advent Home Junior Academy our son would probably be in jail right now with no hope for his future. Praise the Lord for the Advent Home Junior Academy!
Advent Home help students who are behind in school to thier grade level. They have a balanced program called Maturation Theraphy where they focus on the mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, and social sides of the student. It is a program that is incomparable to other learning centers.
My school is a residential treatment center for boys with ADHD, or other learning disabilities. We place them here in a minimun distraction envioment and with remedial and one on one attention bring them back up to grade level. They sometimes come with behavioral problems that we meet with non violent disciplinary protocall. They learn self control and teamwork in the classroom, on the playing field, in the home and also learn a good work ethic. When boys are dismissed by other schools for disrupting the class, misconduct or disrespect to their parents, we are the outsourse for these students to help them get back into mainstream schooling. We offer not only remedial schooling but online schooling to teens wanting to get their GED. We offer apprentis options in the school farming and greenhouses, as well as Cooking and food management, and other vocations to 18 year olds and up.
fake school scam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! dont send your son here dosent help at all a waste of time and money dont do it your messing up your sons life
