“When I visited my son at Coral Reef Academy, I finally understood what my son was talking about and why he was so changed.  He said, ‘Dad, all a lot of these people have is a roof, some food and people who love them…and they’re the happiest people I’ve ever met!’ It changed me too.”  -Dr. Mark G.

Hi, I’m Rodney Rice.  If what you’re reading here sounds like the kind of experience your son might need to find his way back to wholeness, maturity and confidence, please call me today at (702) 233-0444 to discuss your situation.  We specialize in helping boys find their way through the maze of adolescence to the firm footing of responsible adulthood. 
All of our students have enormous potential, but have gotten lost somewhere on the journey from childhood to young adulthood.  Call me if your son is an otherwise capable young man who is struggling with one or more of the following issues:

  • Low self-esteem
  • Anger
  • Difficulty making or keeping friends
  • Refusal to take responsibility for his actions
  • Depression,  anxiety and bipolar disorder
  • Oppositional behavior, defiance or conduct disorder
  • Difficulty following through
  • School underperformance
  • Budding substance abuse not requiring detox or hospitalization
  • Dual diagnosis with primary diagnosis of mood disorder
  • Learning disabilities
  • Non-verbal learning disabilities
  • School avoidance
