For over 50 years, Samaritan Center’s residential Christian program has helped boys with behavioral issues become young men of character. Boys in grades 1 through 8 come to Samaritan Center as a result of inappropriate behavior resulting in poor academic performance. Prior to the closure of our campus due to the pandemic, Samaritan Center boys resided at our Stuart, Florida campus five days a week. This residential aspect allows us to address our boys’ academic performance as well as their behavior in and out of the classroom. Our team approach also includes counseling for each boy’s family to improve their parenting skills by learning to work our proven behavioral system in their own homes.
