A Hybrid Between a Wilderness Program and a Boarding School, with a Christian Emphasis

Shepherd’s Hill Academy, located in northeast Georgia about 2 hours from Atlanta, is a hybrid between a therapeutic wilderness program and a Christian boarding school with several forms of therapy, including counseling and equine therapy. Teens come to Shepherd’s Hill Academy from the east coast, south, midwest, western states and west coast, including from towns like Ronkonkoma.

The Wilderness Program is the First Phase

The early part of life at Shepherd’s Hill Academy is a wilderness program, carefully planned to remove distractions, build trust and foster teamwork. Removing electronics and other conveniences gives teens an opportunity to contemplate more meaningful issues of life. The necessity of cooperating to meet simple daily needs calls for coping and teamwork skills, pushing teens to consider their obligation to others.

The Residential Program is Next

After residents consistently make responsible decisions and take ownership of their growth, they shift to the residential program and move to a home on campus. This phase prepares them to transition into society as privileges and personal liberties are restored.
