U.S. Department of State - warning against such facilities abroad

The Academy earlier known as Coral Island Academy was a behavior modification program marketed as a therapeutic boarding school. It is claimed to have a campus south of Myrtle Creek in Oregon and another campus on Fiji in the Pacific ocean south of the village of Korokula [2].

However it is unclear whether the campus in Oregon is in operation [3]

The political situation in Fiji is unstable [4], so parents should consider this beside the normal warning from the U.S authorities about oversea schools [5]

They are no longer registered at NATSAP, but their old record stated that they could detain 42 teenagers aged between 12 and 18 of both genders and their program lasted 3 to 18 months. It is claimed to be founded in 2001.

September 2010 the human rights organization HEAL-online confirmed the program closed.
