During the year authorities have raided the facility, the former owner had been tried in court and there was a riot also. Finally the hurricane Katrina damaged the buildings so badly the detained teenagers inside it, that they had to be transferred to other WWASP facilities.

It was sold to Narvin Lichield, who also runs Carolina Springs Academy and Pillars of Hope in Costa Rica, which enables the owners to offer a package, which includes a stay in Costa Rica, where they can look after the owners horses [2]
