Christian Boarding Schools in Florida

sha billboard picHere at Shepherd’s Hill Academy, we know your child…we really do.  Through 20 years working with difficult and rebellious teenagers, we know what you are going through.  Your home has become a nightmare.  Your child is angry, running with the wrong crowd, perhaps dabbling in drugs, alcohol or sex, and in trouble at school.  You’ve been told your teen has ADD, ADHD, OCD or some other addiction or disorder.  He/she has been in counseling, but that doesn’t seem to be helping.  And now you don’t know what to do.

Nothing is working, 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.

Therapeutic Boarding School Providing Serious Help

SHA serves 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 use wilderness therapy since the greatest opportunity for character and educational growth happens once feelings of entitlement are diminished. And best of all, we aren’t far from Florida!

Perhaps our therapeutic boarding school in Georgia would be a good investment for your family in Florida as well. If so, we invite you to Inquire Now to Learn More.
