Student Life

Active, Healthy, Family Lifestyle at Vision Boys Academy

Troubled preteen boys at Vision Boys Academy boarding school enjoy our 27-acre campus that includes a fishing pond, basketball court, and weight-lifting area. Students live in comfortable dorm, able to house 12-15 boys in a safe, understanding environment monitored by staff 24/7. We serve healthy meals every day next door in our family-style cafeteria. Boys attend classes, Monday through Friday, in our newly updated school house. Vision Boys Academy staff and their families live on-campus in housing attached to the school.
