Preparing Your Teen For A Better Tomorrow

“The decision to pull a student out of their home context is a really big step. It’s often the right step for a family and when that step is needed, we’re here and we’re available. Our plan at CMA, and our hope is to spark lasting change in a student’s life and then get students back into the home context as quickly as possible.”

-Andrew Stroup, CMA Campus Director

WHAT TO DO BEFORE ENROLLING YOUR STUDENT

Before applying for Caribbean Mountain Academy (CMA), we’ll want to first have a phone discussion to make sure the program is the right fit. Feel free to call us at 877-594-9204 or fill out the inquiry form. A Caribbean Mountain Academy Representative will answer any questions and set your mind at ease. Once your questions are adequately answered, the next step for you to take is to fill out an online application. 

ONLINE APPLICATION

When you are ready, you can fill out the online application. Once your application is received, we will let you know within 72 business hours if your teen is accepted. If we have follow-up questions, we’ll ask those within the same amount of time. If your child is not accepted, we will give you our recommended course of action.

SCHEDULE A PARENT IMMERSION TRIP (OPTIONAL)

Feel free to schedule a trip to visit the Caribbean Mountain Academy campus before you make your final decision. Many parents have benefitted from seeing our campus firsthand as they weigh the decision to enroll their teen. We will give you a tour of our beautiful campus, introduce you to the staff who will be caring for your child, and you’ll see all the ways we ensure our students are well taken care of. You’ll also get the opportunity to go on an outing with the students, whether it’s a service project or an adventure activity.

ENROLLMENT PROCESS

If your teen is approved for Caribbean Mountain Academy, you will receive a student enrollment packet. After filling out the enrollment packet, the next step is to plan your student’s arrival date. You will be connected with a Caribbean Mountain Academy’s case manager, who will help with your travel plans. Many parents are unsure of how to get their rebellious child to come to our boarding school for troubled teens. If that’s you, feel free to reach out and we’ll help walk you through the process.

We know it’s difficult to watch your child struggle, but deep down you know that they will be better off after receiving help. After all, it’s because as parents, we love our kids and want them to receive the help they need, even if they don’t want it at first.

SAFETY QUESTIONS

Prospective parents often come to us with safety concerns. This is understandable. You care deeply for your child and you want to make sure they’re being taken care of. Rest assured, we want that for your child as well. Many parents have benefited from visiting campus before their student arrives. When these parents have seen the campus and the staff involvement, their worries have vanished. 

24/7 SUPERVISION AND ADULT PRESENCE WITH ALL STUDENTS

Students are under 24/7 staff supervision. A staff member is always present with them both on and off-campus, and there is night staff to provide supervision for students while they are asleep. Security cameras provide an extra layer of protection for the students. In addition, there is a local guard at the gate of the campus which helps CMA foster good relationships with the townspeople. This creates a sense of trust in the community and helps keep everyone safe.

Caribbean Mountain Academy exists to reignite and restore hope for teens and their families.
