A Closer Look at Shepherds Hill Academy
The best way to describe Shepherds Hill Academy… it is a hybrid between a residential therapeutic wilderness program and a Christian boarding school. Our programs consist of several forms of therapy; such as individual counseling and equine, group and family sessions for the adolescent.
Upon arrival to Shepherds Hill Academy your teen will be enrolled in our outdoor residential wilderness program. This program is designed to unplug your teen and eliminate distractions. Removing your teen from media and modern conveniences allows them to contemplate more meaningful issues of life.
After completing the outdoor residential wilderness phase of our program, your teen may be invited to complete our Next Step program. With proven growth and responsibility, the Next Step program will allow your teen to live in a house on campus in a more home-like setting. During this portion of the program more of their individual freedoms and privileges are restored. This phase of the program prepares your teen to transition back into society utilizing more healthier behaviors.
