Mars Hill, NC, February 04, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Harbor Oaks Boarding School, a private behavior modification school based in western North Carolina, is pleased to announce the completion of new lodging for its boys’ program. Five new log homes will provide housing for students, with an anticipated March move-in date.
The cottages are located on a scenic wooded acreage and will accommodate six-to-ten boys each, as well as full-time house parents for added security and comfort.
“We’re excited about this new addition to our school,” said Pat Jones, owner and director of Harbor Oaks Boarding School.
“The new homes are spacious, comfortable and create an overall positive environment for our students,” she added.
By design, the homes will create a family atmosphere and teach students independent life skills as they work side-by-side with houseparents, sharing chores such as meal preparation, lawn care and general maintenance of the property.
The beautiful location of Harbor Oaks Boarding School and its new homes also offer plenty of outdoor activities. Several ponds are stocked for fishing and nearby mountain trails provide the opportunity for afternoon hikes. Additionally, an area ski resort allows students to take advantage of the slopes for fun and fellowship during the winter months.
“Despite being in a remote location, there’s a little bit of everything here for our kids,” said Jones, who was just recently inducted into the Cambridge Who’s Who Registry of Executives, Professionals and Entrepreneurs. “The new boys’ lodging is just one of many projects we are working on and we plan to make some more exciting announcements in the near future.”
One such project, includes the addition of three more homes for the girls’ program. Those homes are currently under construction and should be completed by the summer.
