Our Students

— CCBS is One of the Top Boys Boarding Schools —

“Development comes from within. Nature does not hurry but advances slowly.”

– Mr. Rogers

Our students are great kids with real challenges. By the time boys reach Cherokee Creek Boys School, family relationships are often strained and the home environment may be in chaos. Many of our students are unaware, unwilling or incapable of recognizing the negative impact that their actions have on themselves, their families and those around them.

Our students begin a journey of self-discovery at CCBS and will continue this life-long process with expanded insight and new tools as they graduate and return home.
