What We Do

We find people interested in a residential program and then walk them through the steps and help provide them with the information they need. This helps them decide exactly what type of program or academy will meet their teen’s physical, emotional and academic needs. We spend time with them to help them understand the strengths and weaknesses of the various programs, the costs, and the level of care or academic achievement at each facility. We guide them through the entire process form research to enrollment, and even transport, if necessary.

Our services will help you decide which is best for their situation from among an array of programs:

  • Military schools
  • Residential treatment centers
  • Therapeutic boarding schools
  • Wilderness therapy program
  • Eating disorder clinics
  • Emotional and behavioral growth programs
  • Family restoration programs
  • Substance abuse/detox centers
  • Junior boarding school (ages 7-12)

Helping Parents Make the Best Choice For Their Child

We recognize there are many types of boarding schools in the United States; however, some excel at helping kids in certain types of situations. For example, while one school may have a great structured environment, but it may not necessarily have sports. Our experience lies in knowing where programs excel and what they can do to address specific issues in the life of a child.




NON-REFERRAL/NON-EXPERT DISCLAIMER: Options expressed by Best Choice Admissions Services LLC ("BCAS") and its representatives are not professional referrals nor expert recommendations of a medical, behavioral health, or educational professional. BCAS is not licensed or bonded to provide medical, psychological, or educational advice or recommendations, so we don't. You should consider seeking advice from a licensed professional before making any decision in relation to the placement of any child in a residential program. BCAS assists the admissions departments of schools as a communications contractor and agent of record, from which it also receives compensation for its work. BCAS is indemnified by each organization and has no control over the actions of such organizations or their staff. BCAS is rarely on-campus of each program, so we do not know everything about what goes on, nor should we be held responsible for such information. We visit each campus periodically and get anecdotal feedback about each program from parents, which aids us in providing helpful options to individuals as they search for the program of their own best choice. By Federal law, we are required to mention that we select programs to represent solely based upon their desire for our assistance, and they pay us a flat fee based on each student placed. We receive no kickbacks for the amount of services the student requires, nor their length of stay in the school or program. Of the schools and programs we mention as options, we do not select them or push any particular ones based on their ability to pay us a higher amount than do other schools or programs. For some low-income individuals, we may mention schools that pay us nothing. Should we learn that a school has done anything inappropriate with students, such that it is being investigated by local or state authorities, we will immediately stop offering that school as an option. However, due to confidentiality agreements, we may not be able to express why the school or program is no longer included in our discussion or options list. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) caution that before you enroll a youngster in a private residential treatment program or any institution or service that we mention, be sure to check it out yourself: ask questions; ask for proof or support for claims about staff credentials, program licensing or accreditation, and endorsements; do a site visit; and get all policies and promises in writing.

“NO WARRANTY” LEGAL NOTICE: BCAS does not guarantee recovery or even positive outcomes for any particular individual who attends any program or school we might offer as an option. Recovery and future avoidance of troubling behavior or actions and whatever effects that may have on the individual’s life, their future, their career, their mental or physical health, or their friends and relatives are entirely dependent on each individual student and how they accept and apply the principles they are taught by the program, school or its staff or therapists.
