177. Red River Academy
Red River Academy located just outside Lecompte in Louisiana is regarded as one of the remaining boarding schools which uses the WWASP curriculum using some kind of psychodrama as tool when dealing with troubled teenagers. Daylong seminars combined with a lot of use of restraints fill the daily life of the students which is isolated from their family most of the time while they are forced to attend the program.
It does not sound like a fun place to be as a teenager.
