The Mainstream Educational System Works With Many Students But There Are Strong Indications That It Is Failing To Meet The Needs Of Boys

If your son presents as being disengaged from school, you are well aware that the marks he is bringing home do not reflect his ability. Although marks do not necessarily reflect intelligence, your son’s belief in his own intelligence can be reflected by his marks. Too often once a boy’s disengagement from school begins it takes on a life of its own.

To reverse this process, it is important to be able to get your son to believe himself and begin to put in the effort and perseverance required to climb out of the hole he has enabled himself to end up in. Support, encouragement and a belief in hard work and its results require a specialized program that supports your son in a holistic manner.

Does This Sound Like Your Son?

The Solution

The impact on you and your family is immense. Your son’s special temperament is the hardest type to parent.

Mainstream school systems do not support you or your son, and places undue burdens on you, making the job even harder. It may be impossible for you to balance the demands of work, family, and daily routine. You know your son can succeed, he just needs to change to make it happen.

You know that deep down inside your son wants to change in order to succeed in school and in life. You can both agree on at least one thing: get into university or college and have a decent future. You can also likely agree on one more thing: that to do this he needs to be in a new, challenging, and motivating environment, away from the distractions and friends that are diverting him right now.
