Brush Creek Academy’s Admissions
“Thank you for your interest in Brush Creek Academy. We are honored to serve you, and our greatest desire is to see God’s will come to pass for you and your family. Our prayer is that you would be filled with his peace that surpasses all understanding through this difficult season.”
– Amy Lynn Marshall, Admissions Coordinator
Please fill in our Inquiry Form to begin the enrollment process, or to learn more call Admissions, at (888) 381-4893 and our qualified team will walk you through the enrollment specifics and costs.
The tuition for Brush Creek Academy therapeutic boarding school for troubled boys is partially offset by donations from the community. So, our tuition is much less than other schools for troubled teens. It is actually less than what it costs us to provide 24/7 care, food, counseling, activities, and education for each student year-round. There is monthly tuition along with a one-time non-refundable fee upon enrollment. This is for curriculum, our animal therapy program, athletic equipment, and a tech fee (for school). If you wish for your student to go optionally on one of our missions trips (if he has progressed far enough in the program that this is a possibility) there will be a nominal travel fee.
How Are We Different from Other Therapeutic Schools?
Our goal, ultimately, is to see God’s love restore your teen to a life of promise and hope. We use tools that bridge the gap between parents and teens to see this carried out. Brush Creek is truly a place of learning, healing, and restoration through grace.
The Enrollment Process
We’ll then discuss our program with you and help you determine if our program is an appropriate placement for your child. If not, we can refer you to other quality programs that may be more appropriate to meet your boy’s needs.

Complete an Application After Speaking to Admissions.
An application will be provided to you, which can be emailed, faxed, or mailed back to us. Once our Brush Creek Academy Admissions Department receives an enrollment application, one of our Admissions Coordinators will contact you within 24 hours (weekdays) and answer any enrollment questions you may have. After the application has been received, it will be reviewed by our Admissions staff and Program Director where a decision on whether or not your child is a good fit for our program is made. We will inform you of our enrollment decision soon after receiving and reviewing your submitted enrollment application. If he is accepted, we will contact you to work out the final items and details for his admission. Once a student is initially accepted, an interview with the student is preferred.
Determine an Admission Date and Make a Deposit
A non-refundable Processing Deposit is required in order to set an Admission Date. We then will coordinate a good time to bring your student, so we can prepare to receive him. An Admission Packet with all the information is then sent to the parent or guardian for completion prior to admission. This packet includes a list of what to bring from documentation to toiletries. The length of the process is typically 7-10 days, but it can be accomplished in a few days if needed and if all the proper information is supplied by the parent.
Admit Your Child
Once you have enrolled your child you will need to be introduced to all of our policies and procedures. You will need to know about everything your child is going through in his first few weeks and beyond. There are a lot of details that you will need to be aware of and need to be a part of. On the day of admissions, parents accompany their teen to Brush Creek, where they meet the staff, have orientation, and complete the paperwork. Opportunities will be given to ask questions and voice concerns. There are plenty of wonderful accommodations near campus. If you are not able to physically bring your teen, there are professional escorts that we can recommend, however, the parent/guardian is required to attend. To be successful in making a life change, parents/guardians must be prepared to keep their child in the program until he successfully completes all levels. During the “In-residence” portion of the program, parents/guardians will attend three “Parent/Guardian” conferences. These special family events are critical components to your child’s success and are required. The Admissions Department will remain in contact and available to you by phone and email throughout the intake process. After the admissions process is complete, communication will then shift to the program staff. We understand that this is most likely the most difficult decision that you’ve encountered. You are not alone, and we want you to understand that and feel supported.
