Smile Agapé Boarding School gets a great review! - 07-04-2022, 11:13 AM



Yahoo:
In southwest Missouri, a Baptist compound for troubled teen boys promises redemption on its bucolic 200-acre campus. Behind the facility’s arched gate, children will find a swimming pool, sports fields, and ranch for horses and exotic animals. Agapé Boarding School “is truly a place where miracles happen,” one piano-filled commercial boasts.

At Agapé, we lovingly, patiently, and biblically teach your child the importance of submission to authority and the joys of being an obedient law-abiding citizen,” a soft-spoken voiceover actor says while images of smiling teenagers flash across the screen. “Mom and Dad, we want to support you in your effort to rescue your son from himself.”

For the past 30 years Agapé has provided over 6,000 boys with an opportunity to get their life back on track and toward a bright future,” Kansas City attorney John Schultz said. “Along with...24/7 supervision that extends to the sleeping quarter, shower bays...''

The school, which reportedly charges $48,000 a year in tuition...said, “Sometimes we make mistakes, but our hearts are in the right place.”
They not only are still fighting the War On Drugs, they are fighting the war on placebo drugs as well:
I remember this guy in the dorm rolled a fake joint and these staff members restrained him for hours,” Bucklin said. “He came back into the dorm, his shirt was torn apart, he had blood everywhere all over him, his face was black and blue. And that happened constantly..."
The kids learn all sorts of things:
You learned how to survive every day,” Bucklin said. “We learned how to talk without moving our lips because you weren’t allowed to talk. You could get restrained for talking.
What a useful skill to learn! I wish they had taught that at my school.
Josh Bradney was sent to Agapé in 2014 when he was 12, after his parents deemed him disrespectful...

When he first arrived, Bradney says, staff strip-searched him and chucked his Bible into the trash. They told him he could only have the King James Version of the scripture.

...staff would accuse outcasts...of being gay and encourage classmates to attack them, to “beat them up until they’re straight.”

They were kicking us, calling us terrorists, pieces of [dung]. He said, ‘This is why we don’t let your type of people into this country.’

It brings back memories! Ah to feel the vigor of youth again, to be a prefect, isolating and beating the younger boys, instilling discipline. There's so much life ahead of them.


If I have seen further, it is by standing on the heads of others.

These kind of schools need 100% attendance at Bible classes and other Christian training programs. It's been found surrounding such facilities with razor wire improves attendance.



Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

So beautiful! It's meant to evoke Christ's Martyr's Crown of Thorns, no?

That's just the sort of thing that children need to focus their minds on as they study and pray.

There seems to be criticism (from the usual quarters) but I noticed some alumni return as staff members. Would that even be a thing if it didn't work?
