208. Anchor Academy

Anchor Academy was founded in Texas. The target group is teenage boys who have Christian parents most would regard as fundamentalists. Due to problems with the authorities they moved to Montana. When Montana worked on legislation which could have made an impact on their methods, they moved to Missouri where they exist today.

Among the punishments they have used in the past were corporal punishment and force the boys to wear red shirts.

It doesn’t sound like a fun place to be as a teenager.
