FAQs

Q – WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND A 12-MONTH PROGRAM?

A- Studies show that it often takes 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 6-9 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 12 months to complete, although some complete it in as few as 9 months.  Our goal is to set your son up for long-term success in life; for long-term success we strongly encourage a long-term program.

Q – WHY A CHRISTIAN PROGRAM?

A – As a Christian Behavior and Recovery Center, we’ve used Christian principles to develop our program and curriculum, and we rely on those principles in all that we do. While at Lakeside Academy, we encourage each student to develop his own personal relationship with Christ.

Q – HOW WILL MY SON BENEFIT?

A – You can see the results–right relationships, restored families, truly content and purposeful lives, and refocused futures.
