Live Strong House is ahead of the curve with a unique philosophy of clinical collaboration which creates therapeutic fidelity across all departments.

Resident-to-staff ratio Most boarding schools have 12 or more students living together. At Live Strong House, a maximum of 3 students lives with their life coach at their own Live Strong House.

Skilled Life Coaches Ongoing training through the Teaching-Family Model and great benefits keep turnover low. The low student-to-staff ratio appeals to our coaches. Our staff are some of the most devoted and best in the business.

Continuity of Staff At the Live Strong House, there is one life coach (and one assistant) for three students. This reduces the problems inherent in coordinating treatment and communicating with day, weekend, evening, and graveyard staff.

Recreation and Community  We feel it is important for students to serve and be part of a larger community and to participate in outdoor recreation. We don’t live in a bubble, and neither do our students. This exposure builds grit, resilience, and empathy.

Unique Therapeutic Approach In addition to traditional therapy, we empower families and their students by providing weekly parent coaching and auxiliary transition services. Our understanding of the adolescent brain informs every aspect of our practice.

Personalized Academics Each student receives an individualized education plan. We can manage each students’ needed accommodations/modifications ranging from foundational to advanced classes. It is important to us for our students to do the work to continue to have choices and opportunity as they advance in their education

We will not compromise our students or our standards to fill a house. The Live Strong House model has been proven to affect greater influence and change in our students’ and families’ lives.  Our treatment teams are highly trained, experienced, and committed to building young men.
