FAQs

Q – WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND A LONG-TERM PROGRAM?

A- Studies show that it often takes up to a full year for adolescents to let go of bad habits and create new healthy behaviors.  When boys graduate from our program, most admit to us (and their parents) that “real changes” in their thinking and values started to take place after after they decided to engage — within 3-6 months at Lakeside Academy… and only then did they dig in to complete the program and make true and lasting changes.

Our program is made up of 4-levels and typically takes 6-12 months to complete depending on one’s engagement; most will complete in about 9 months. 

Q – WHY A CHRISTIAN PROGRAM?
