Still considering a boarding school for your troubled teenager in Laurel, Maryland? Have you thought about a fresh start in an out-of-state school to get your teenager out of the chaos he or she is ensnared in? Let us share with you a 12-month therapeutic program and boarding school that offers the necessary healing to return your teenager to the quality of life he or she so desperately needs. This same program offers healing for not just the troubled teenager in your life, but their whole family as well. Since 2001, Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA) has helped heal families!
Shepherds Hill Academy, located in Martin, Georgia, is very sensitive to the heavy heart you are carrying for your troubled teenager! We find many parents wondering and asking these questions:
- What has happened to my child?
- Why is he or she showing no interest in school work and they are cutting classes?
- Why are they lying where they are on a school night or on the weekend?
- Why are they lying about experimenting with drugs when we can clearly see on social media that they, in fact, are using, maybe selling drugs?
- What made my child start looking at pornography?
- Why is my child addicted to sexual activities?
- Why is my son or daughter abusive to me?
It Is Time to Seek Real Help for a Real Problem
Whatever is causing your teenager’s problems, you have probably already sought out family counseling, family advice, or tried the curfew, phone and grounding restrictions. You might have seen very little success with these methods; but true to form, nothing short-term works! This is where Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA) comes in!
Teens come to SHA broken and in crisis, which this affects the entire family. We know how hard it is for parents to determine and admit their whole family is in crisis and in desperate need of help. Since our program is for a year, we work through a myriad of daily healing activities with our students. Therefore, when your teen is ready to depart the program, they have had the opportunity to become clear-minded and with a sense of purpose and drive to succeed. We also include many family and parenting activities throughout the year to attain our number one goal to heal the family.
