At Lakeside Academy, our staff works with each boy in cooperation with their family. The staff of Lakeside brings to the table a vast amount of experience and knowledge. Coming alongside each teen, these men and women provide a wealth of mentorship, listening and accountability.
We integrate outdoor and adventure activities into all aspects of the program as well as self-paced core-curriculum class that allow each teen to “keep up or catch up” in their academic needs.
Lakeside Academy was built on a foundation of faith. The program includes biblical principles that focus on fostering new behaviors, character development, and on allowing each teen boy to recognize who they were created to be. We do this by providing a place that they can truly belong; a place for new, positive relationships and daily opportunities to learn about God and be challenged in their faith.
“I have a passion for seeing troubled boys begin to understand themselves through God’s plan for their life fostered by programs consisting of strong academics, practical living and Teen Challenge classes. I am thrilled to now be the Director of Lakeside Academy—returning to my roots–serving teens and growing a program I so deeply believe in.” -Jeff Dye, center director
