Consider Georgia-Based Shepherds Hill Academy Residential Boarding School Programs
You are exhausted both mentally and physically by trying to deal with a teen who is defiant, angry, and out of control. You worry about the safety of your teen as well as the safety of yourself and your family. Your teen may be violent, in trouble with the law, facing expulsion from school, or involved in drugs, alcohol, and sexual promiscuity, and you don’t know what else to do. You need help.
While Shepherds Hill Academy is not located in Maryland, we help teens and their families from all across the country, including Aberdeen and surrounding communities. Our location in northeast Georgia means that your teen will be far away from negative influences in his current community. When teens cannot access previous negative communities and people, the healing process can begin.
Christian-Centric Hybrid Programs that Teach Troubled Teens Growth and Responsibility
We combine the effectiveness of a Wilderness Program with a residential boarding school environment. This hybrid approach taps the best of both types of programs to help teens learn to work as part of a team while learning personal responsibility and how their actions affect others. Throughout all of our programs runs our Christian ethic, a Christ-centered emphasis on true change in hearts and minds.
All incoming teens start out in our Wilderness Program. Boys and girls live in segregated camps in a rustic—though beautiful—environment. Here, each teen will be part of a team that must work together to live without electronics and other modern distractions while accomplishing daily tasks of life.
Once they qualify, teens move into the Next Step Program. Now living on-campus, each teen continues to attend school while being allowed to earn specific privileges and freedoms as he or she shows continued character growth and maturity.
All teens in our programs are enrolled in and attend classes in our learning center. This fully accredited school is staffed with a team of caring and compassionate certified teachers who assist each teen in earning credits for graduation. Teens can access basic education classes to get caught up to grade level as well as courses designed to help them successfully take ACT and SAT tests for college admission. Elective classes and vocational technology courses are also available.
