“Young people need strong relationships with parenting adults, mentors, teachers, coaches and neighbors. They need us to show them that we’re paying attention, we’re invested in them. Young people also need us to support them in working toward their goals and aspirations. They need us to challenge and push them to grow… to inspire them and hold them accountable. It’s part of our job as caring adults to open windows and doors through which young people can discover who they are and where they fit in the world.”

– Gene Roehlkepartain, Ph.D., SEARCH Institute

Relationships are the “secret ingredient” in the healing process at our therapeutic boarding school. In our warm and nurturing environment boys build trusting relationships with staff. We recruit staff who have experience working with kids and express and exhibit leadership and mentoring talents.

Many boys have not had successful or meaningful friendships prior to arriving at Cherokee Creek. This is the place for friendships to blossom and for boys to learn the social skills necessary for sustaining good relationships.
