Lift with Boys Town

A community-based, multi-tiered, multi-component, prevention intervention system. Our goal is to intervene before problems reach a level where children are unsafe, not at school, and the school community is not thriving. The program’s family- and school-based programs combine for a multi-component approach that uses a common language and a common set of expectations among teachers, parents, and children.

Duncan Day School

The Boys Town Day School serves students of all ages – kindergarten through 12th grade – who cannot receive education services in a public or alternative school setting because of their behavioral problems and academic deficiencies. Specially trained Boys Town teachers and administrators provide instruction to help meet children's unique learning needs. Learn more​ about the Boys Town Day School in Duncan or call 402-897-2014.
