Your Search for Therapeutic Boarding Schools near Kentucky is Over
Why go all the way to Georgia to locate the kind of boarding school for troubled teens that your teen and your family needs? At Shepherds Hill Academy, we offer the kind of programs—a hybrid wilderness/residential boarding school environment—that have proven effective for dozens of rebellious, at-risk teenagers. Parents of teens we’ve helped think it’s well worth the travel time. Located in northeast Georgia, two hours from Atlanta, we welcome teens from all over the states of Kentucky and Georgia and all parts of the country.
Troubled teens can cause serious problems for themselves, their families, and their futures. If you are struggling to deal with a teenager who is out of control, has been diagnosed with behavioral issues that require more help than you can give, or is exhibiting symptoms (many times undiagnosed) of severe emotional, mental, or behavioral issues, it’s time to get help. With the help of the certified counselors and educators at Shepherds Hill Academy, your teen, you as a parent, and your family can begin the healing process.
Georgia-Based Shepherds Hill Academy Hybrid Program Maintains a Christ-Centered Focus
Both wilderness programs and therapeutic boarding school programs have proven very effective for helping troubled teens learn personal accountability and to consider others when making choices. SHA participants begin in our Wilderness Program, where boys and girls learn to cooperate with others in gender-segregated rustic communities in order to accomplish daily tasks. As teens exhibit their growth, they can qualify for the Next Step Program. In this program, teens live in on-campus housing and begin earning back freedoms and privileges. Other vital programs include equine therapy as well as individual, family, and group therapy and counseling.
Because we believe that it is only through a relationship with Jesus Christ that hearts can truly change for the better, all of our programs emphasize an unapologetically Christian ethic.
