516. The family (Australian Church Community)

The Family also known as “Great White Brotherhood” and “Santiniketan Park Association” was founded in the early 1960’s. A number of children were adopted into the community. The children were subjected to a number of drugs including LSD. In 1987 the children were removed by the authorities and the founders charged with various crimes. Due to legal complications the owners were only fined.

It could not have been fun to be there as a child.

366. The Well of Grace Boarding Academy

The police found the bruises on some boarding school students were too severe to be justified according to the law. While this boarding school like so many make use of corporal punishment the court now have to decide whether the employees were out of line. Sources have told us that the bruising were “ordinare” and what both students and parents should expect when they sign kids up for a stay in a religious based Baptist boarding school. The police came to another conclusion.

But based on the common knownledge about how it is to be student at such a place it is safe to state that it wasn’t fun.

This facility is marketed as a religious boarding school for male teenagers aged between 12 and 17. It is located in Robertsdale, Alabama. The management seems have been working for some of the infamous religious boarding schools in Missouri.

Communication with peers back home is restricted. The curriculum is ACE which makes it hard to be accepted into most colleges.

Spending time where you don’t achieve real credits and missing out of high school parties makes it safe to state that it cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
