We're a Free Service that Helps Parents Find the Right Alternative Boarding School, Therapeutic Boarding School, or Residential Treatment Center for Their Teen

Free to Parents

Christian educational consulting
There is never a fee charged to any parent for our assistance. We're a contracted arm of a network of the best schools and programs in the nation. Our goal is to help parents understand which schools may be a good option for their situation. We work with many residential programs and schools and are paid a flat fee by them for each enrollment we facilitate.

Helping Troubled Teens

troubled teen
We are a complimentary service to help parents of troubled teenagers find the right therapeutic program for their child. Parents connect with us through the many directories that we operate for the boarding school industry. If a teen needs help from a therapeutic school, we can provide the appropriate options and information.

No Pressure/Obligation

educational consulting
We help parents by walking them through the steps to find and enroll in an appropriate school or program. We work with them throughout the process. We spend a great deal of time with them to help them understand the strengths of each school, the costs, and the level of care each school or program provides its students.


Programs that participate are allowed to display our excellence seal:

“I love Best Choice. I found them enormously valuable in our search process and highly recommend them to anyone who asks for boarding school advice. They were critical to our process of filtering through all the noise and helping us find the right fit for our daughter.”
— Parent
“You have been a blessing for us, I just got your number randomly from an article online. I was lost and didn’t know where to start, you helped pave my way and hopefully, things will work out for Amina and therefore for all of us.”
— Parent
“Just a note again to say how much I appreciated your assistance. My daughter was accepted at one of the programs you mentioned, and she started her program on Monday of this week. I am so impressed by the program. My daughter is settling in. She is a bit homesick, but I have confidence that she will make significant strides in her recovery.”
— Norma S.
“Thank you so much! You were the most delightful person we’ve spoken with, in 5 years of trying to get our daughter help. Blessings to you!”
— Cathy H.

“I cannot thank you enough for all of your support with the initial process. I am truly grateful that my daughter is doing well. I hope you had a great summer and look forward to staying in touch!”
— Robyn

“We can’t thank you enough for telling us about this school and all your kindness and support! Have a wonderful day as you continue to help and bless other families that greatly need someone to come alongside them.”
— Parent

“I’m really glad I found you. I could have never done this without your help!”
— Lisa

The Five Points that We are Required to Answer (by Federal Law):

ANSWER: We connect with an ever-widening range of programs and schools that we select based on the breadth of their program, longevity, location, reviews, facility, and the expertise of their personnel.  Though we do not know everything that transpires at the programs and schools we represent, those that fail to keep the students safe or that fail to keep up their level of service are removed from our list.  Even so, parents must understand that we have no control over the program or school.

ANSWER: We are a contracted agent of institutions that allow us to represent them. We receive a flat fee (regardless of the cost of the school/program or the services provided) for any enrollment that is the result of our assistance. We are never paid other kickbacks nor are paid according to the level of the services rendered by the institution to the individual.

ANSWER: We are not licensed, educational consultants or psychologists. We never “refer” an individual to any specific program as would such a professional. Instead, we offer to the individual a list of several that we deem are the best potential options from among the organizations that we represent, and those options are based on the family’s financial ability and the level of services that may be required for the child. We do recommend that the parent seek licensed medical, psychological, or educational help in making a final determination of which school or program to select.

ANSWER: We connect with what we think are the best programs and schools (based on our experience of working in such programs and schools in the past) and ask them if they would allow us to include them in our list of options.  Others contact us for assistance, which begins a review process to see if they are worthy of being included in our network.  If so, we enter into a contract with them to become the agent of their admissions department, but we make no promises as to the number of individuals we will direct to their organization, nor do we allow any to pay or give us any more remuneration than our flat fee.

ANSWER: We work with any individual, regardless of their ethnicity or beliefs.  The only individuals who may not be helped by us are those who have no funds to pay any organization we represent, or if any or all of those organizations we represent decline to accept the child, at their own discretion. As for programs and schools, we will represent them as long as we are assured that they are doing a good job, and the students are kept safe. However, since we do not know everything that goes on at the organization, nor have any control over that, the organization indemnifies us from liability.
