On one of their homepages there is a reference to a boarding in Lecompte, Louisiana once under the WWASP umbrella.
The target group is teenagers of both genders aged between 13 and 18.
They utilize a level system with three levels. They are named:
|The Boundary Stage||This stage brings very few privileges and is basically about to force the teenagers to adjust to the restricted environment|
|The Growth Stage|
|The Internalization Stage|
The teenagers are forced to speak Spanish during their stay at the campus. They are forced to work as "volunteers" in the community <ref>About MENTOR, homepage of the facility</ref>
According to the website the academics are gained through the Browning Distance Learning Academy, which is accredited through the Northwest Accreditation Commission.
