“The Ozark Trails Academy program is one of the best I’ve seen, after my time serving as a juvenile court trial judge for over 25 years. The director and founder, Richard Jones, started the program because he cares deeply about helping kids achieve lifetime success. I would not hesitate to refer family and friends to Ozark Trails Academy.”
