A Word From Our CEO

Welcome to Shepherd’s Hill Academy

It’s never easy to see your child go through difficult times. It’s even more agonizing to watch them spiral into crisis. As parents, we fight to give our children our absolute best, but when our best is outnumbered by the toxicity of outside stimuli and influence, what can be done? Balancing these very personal pressures while searching for support can be devastating and feel altogether too much. We understand. You need to know there is hope for your family.

Choosing therapeutic residential care for your teenager is likely the toughest decision you will ever make as a parent. The saturation of harmful media and digital technology have teamed up to make it more challenging than ever for even the best parents to feel successful today. It’s never been more critical to find a treatment community that understands and targets these challenges while upholding the values that are so important to your family. We want to give that to you.

At Shepherd’s Hill Academy, we are committed to providing a nurturing and structured environment where your teen is not told who to be but instead discovers who they were created to be. Our mission is not only to help our teens survive in society but thrive in it.

We recognize that each teen is unique, with their own set of challenges and strengths. Our dedicated team of professionals works tirelessly to provide personalized therapeutic care that meets the specific needs of your kiddo.

Our approach combines evidence-based therapy, academic excellence, and character development through nature-based experiential living, helping your teen achieve their full potential. We aim to empower your teen to navigate life’s challenges with resilience, self-confidence, and integrity while providing a healing experience for the entire family. You, the family, play an essential role in your teen’s healing process. This journey is created with you in mind and invites you to grow alongside your teen. Our family systems approach carefully explores and addresses familial conflict while working to cultivate connection through active listening and boundary implementation.

We are more than just a school or program – we are a community. A community that believes in redemption and the power of God’s love. We believe every family is valuable and that each individual has a defined purpose.
Our purpose is to serve hurting families who are ready to find hope and healing. We would be honored to serve yours.

I encourage you to explore our website and familiarize yourself with our program and testimonials from parents who once sat where you sit now.

Every day we witness the power of transformation, the joy of reunion, and the strength of healing. We’d love that for your family as well. So, if you’re struggling to find the right help for your teen, know that you’re not alone. We’re here for you.

In Christ’s love,

Allison Wallace
CEO of Shepherd’s Hill Academy
