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 866-318-7392 or fill in the inquiry form on this site. An admissions coordinator will answer any questions that come up about the therapeutic boarding school and set your mind at ease in regard to the foreign location. Once your questions are adequately answered, the next step for you to take is to fill out an application.
Prospective parents are able to schedule a parent visit to Caribbean Mountain Academy. We want you to see the facility and meet our staff, before making the decision to enroll. You’ll get a tour of the campus, see student housing and you can even participate in service projects or adventure activities with the students.
Our application is free to complete and there’s no cost or commitment to make at this stage. We will supply the link to you once we have initially talked.
You can or email it as a PDF. Once your application is received, we will let you know within 24 to 48 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 treatment and other options.
Feel free to schedule a trip to visit the CMA 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.
If your teen is approved for CMA, 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 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 an intervention. 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.
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.
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
We may be a little biased, but we think CMA is the best therapeutic boarding school in the entire world! Many of us on staff are parents ourselves and we are passionate about what we do at CMA. We promise to care for your child as if they were our own and work together with your family to bring healing and hope to your home. If you haven’t yet, please contact us at 866-318-7392 or fill out an inquiry form to get started. We hope to hear from you!
