Salem4youth is first and foremost a Christian Therapeutic Boarding School. We offer an educational program that is specifically structured to support the supervision and training of students that have special challenges. These challenges can include emotional and behavioral problems, learning difficulties, lack of motivation and other deficits that may be the result of self-harming or other detrimental behaviors, including drug and alcohol use. As a Christian Boarding School, our therapy is Biblically based.We combine our therapy and educational program with a unique blend of equine therapy. Using the horses therapeutically and vocationally, youth receive riding instructions bi-weekly and are given the responsibility to care for the horses. The relationships that are developed with our horses help each young man develop self-esteem, self-control, and responsibility.
