223. Thayer Learning Center

Thayer Learning Center was a boot camp styled boarding school located in Kidder, Missouri.

The school put the students through various exercises and the days were very structured. The exercise was soo strict that a boy died and other parents filed lawsuits against the program, which they hadn’t checked enough before they sent their teenagers to the program.

In the end the school had no choice but to close.

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