Cherokee Creek Boys Boarding School is a warm, positive, nurturing, learning community that offers the benefits of small enrollment, hands-on academics, therapy, counseling, recreation and a talented staff dedicated to helping middle school-aged boys find their way back to a life of balance and harmony.
We do this by weaving time for fun, play and laughter; daily exercise; a balanced diet; music; love and support systems; creative outlets for hobbies and activities and time in nature into a healthy and healing living environment for students and staff.
Our curriculum honors the whole child — his intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual nature. We provide a balanced and healthy lifestyle at school and teach the tools for creating sustainable growth and happiness, now and in the future.
Cherokee Creek is a perfect place for "boys to be boys." Our wooded campus is surrounded by state and national parks and wildlife refuges that put boys in touch with the wonder of nature. The region boasts rugged, forested mountains, scenic lakes, gorgeous waterfalls, and some of the best whitewater rafting in the country. Through our environmental studies curriculum and popular Treks program, we take full advantage of the hiking, camping, rafting, canoeing, and climbing opportunities — using nature as a powerful teacher and a source of recreation and fun!
Our students are great kids with very real challenges. By the time boys reach Cherokee Creek, family relationships are often strained and the home environment may be in chaos. Many of our students are unaware, unwilling or incapable of recognizing the negative impact that their actions have on themselves, their families and those around them.
