Find a Quality Therapeutic Boarding School at Shepherd’s Hill Academy in Georgia
One of the hardest parts of being a parent is not knowing how to help your troubled teen. He or she may be engaging in risky behavior, including drugs, alcohol abuse, sexual activity, or violent behavior. Your teen may have been diagnosed (or is still undiagnosed) with a behavioral, mental, or learning disorder. The stress is tearing your family apart, and you don’t know where to turn.
Only an hour away from Greenville, SC, Shepherd’s Hill Academy can help. Although we are located in Georgia next to the South Carolina state line, we serve teens and their families from all over the East Coast, the South, Southeast, Midwest, and even as far as the West Coast. Our program has helped hundreds of teens from homes just like yours to learn personal responsibility, behavior control, and how to make better choices. The distance between your teen’s current home in the Greenville area and Shepherds Hill allows your teen to leave behind the negative influences and distractions that are contributing to his or her poor behavior. Your teen and your family can begin the healing process together.
Georgia Boarding School with a Christian Focus
Our focus is on helping teens make positive behavior changes through each of our quality programs. One of the central tenants of our approach is a Christ-centered focus, and we operate from the belief that it is only through Jesus that any person is able to make real and lasting positive changes.
Shepherd’s Hill Academy participants go through three main programs as well as an equine program and various tailored behavior, individual, and family therapies and counseling. When participants first arrive, they enter the Outdoor Residential Program, where they learn to work as part of a team in a rustic living environment while attending our fully accredited academic program taught by Georgia certified teachers. At the completion of the Outdoor Residential Program, qualified applicants then move to the Next Step program, where they live in on-campus housing while continuing to attend academic courses toward junior and senior high school graduation. Students earn high school credits and can take college prep courses and elective courses in sports, arts, and other classes. We can equip troubled youth with the skills needed to become more confident, productive and respectful at home, school, and in the community.
