Caribbean Mountain Academy, a ministry of Crosswinds, is a place where young people have the opportunity to learn to appreciate the preciousness of others through serving those in a culture much different from the one they grew up in. For a teen struggling with serious issues, Caribbean Mountain Academy provides the perfect setting for them to take a step back and learn to appreciate what they have and gain a new perspective on God, relationships, and life.
The Caribbean Mountain Academy mission program provides perspective to students by allowing them to see people who have a heart for service, living it out right in front of them. It’s one thing to help others because you are asked to and quite another to do so because you want to—out of love.
Crosswinds’ vision is to create long-term partnerships with specific communities around our Caribbean Mountain Academy campus in the Dominican Republic. We believe that we must serve those who have a personal desire and drive to sustain our efforts for our work to be effective long-term. Therefore, we have chosen and are choosing partners whose leaders already have a plan and goals for improving their communities. Our goal is to come alongside these leaders and help them implement their goals. Our students and visiting mission teams will build strong relationships with and offer concentrated educational, economic, and spiritual support to these partners.
Caribbean Mountain Academy is a mission-oriented Christian Therapeutic Boarding School For Troubled Teens.
