A perfect antidote for our own frenetic and self-absorbed teen culture

It’s become increasingly difficult in western society for young men to make the transition from childhood to adulthood without getting painfully lost somewhere along the way. We have a sophisticated treatment approach in a cultural-immersion milieu to help your loved one with emotional difficulties find their way to healing, maturity and independence.

Our program

Why our program works

Cultural immersion

Samoan culture is a wonderful context for developing qualities of compassionate manhood such as familial commitment, responsibility, compassion, maturity and leadership through service. It also teaches them to be compassionate global citizens with a broadly informed perspective.

Clinical

Our team of experienced, licensed clinicians (U.S. licensure) utilizes a solutions-oriented, strengths-based approach to treatment. Our clinical work is based on the most current developmental research and is practical, supportive and individualized.

Academic

We provide a variety of customizable academic options including accredited high school and college coursework, individual instruction and special accommodations for those with learning differences.

Recreation and fitness

Being close to the beach, boys can swim, cliff dive, scuba dive, snorkel, etc. They can participate in traditional sports such as rugby, basketball, football, volleyball, and swimming, playing and competing alongside Samoan teens in local tournaments.
