Surf House Puerto Rico
Is a program which focuses on helping young men between the ages of 16 and 19, who have not found success in traditional schooling to get their high school diplomas and create a plan for their lives that is fulfilling and attainable.
Our goal is to give students a transformative experience during which they find their direction and motivation, repair their relationships, complete their high school education, and learn to live their lives with responsibility and integrity.
We accomplish this through cultural immersion, therapeutic counseling, academics, and adventure sports in an independent living environment where students feel the personal fulfillment of hard work accomplished and challenges overcome.
Whether you found us through your own search or at the recommendation of your parents or an educational consultant, we are glad you are here.
You need to know that making the changes in your life that Surf House will guide you through is not easy. We expect you to work hard to reach your goals, support your peers, give back to the community, and be a leader. You will engage in academic course work, care for your shared living space, learn and practice fundamental skills for independence, work in the community, and more.
You will also have fun while living in one of the most beautiful regions of the world as you experience the island of Puerto Rico through surfing and other adventure sports, explore national parks and historic sites, and participate in cultural events.
Thank you for considering Surf House Puerto Rico, a unique opportunity for your son as he makes the transition to manhood.
If you and your son decide that Surf House is a good fit for your family’s situation; you will be an integral part of the support team that will surround him. However, we do ask you, as parents, to take a step back from making decisions about how your son’s needs are met and the directions he is choosing for the future.
In the course of their Surf House experience, we ask these young men to find their own realistic and obtainable direction—one they believe in and will work hard to achieve. You will have an important voice on the team and will have many opportunities to offer support and advice, but it is your son’s life and he needs to own it and lead it.
