Would You Consider a Therapeutic Boarding School Nearby (in Georgia) that Provides Serious Help for Difficult Teens?
SHA is a short distance away from Florida, serving boys and girls 12-17 who have gotten off track in life. Our therapeutic boarding school has separate wilderness campuses for boys and girls, with our educational campus in the center. We’re a drive from Florida, but that is actually a good thing, because it ensures that your teen will not be so close to the friends and influences in your neighborhood which have caused trouble.
Our Program is Unplugged…Eiminating the Distractions to Healing
Your teen’s journey in our therapeutic boarding school will include a blend of equine therapy, wilderness therapy, group therapy, family therapy and individualized therapy. Our “Unplugged Experiential Living” creates an uncluttered path to discover life’s deeper issues without cultural and media distractions. This back to nature experience improves critical, constructive and creative thinking capacities and promotes a genuine sense of identity, accomplishment, and a renewed desire to learn. The therapeutic and spiritual value of our wilderness environment is unparalleled. Though we employ a myriad of therapeutic approaches, we also focus on building a relationship with God for true heart change. Our team of loving and caring Christian counselors and professionals never force their faith, but they gently demonstrate it in all they do and say.
Fully Accredited On-Campus Education
SHA’s on-campus academy helps students keep on track in their school work and even get ahead. Students in our therapeutic boarding school recoup and repair diminished grades, while also preparing for college and career goals. Credits can be transferred back to Florida.
Nothing is working to turn around your troubled teen, so a new plan needs to be put in place!
That’s what Shepherds Hill Academy Christian boarding school and wilderness therapy program in Northeast Georgia is all about. Many Florida parents attribute our program to saving their child’s life and getting their child back on track motivationally, academically and spiritually.
