Beginning with the Outdoor Wilderness Phase
Upon arriving to the campus of Shepherds Hill Academy, your teen will experience our intense outdoor wilderness program. This phase of our program has been carefully planned to rid your teen of the distractions of life and media that are threatening their character and future. By removing electronics, social media, and conveniences we often take for granted, teens learn to contemplate the deeper issues of life. Your teen will be challenged to work together with their team of fellow students to develop skills in cooperation. Your child will build trust while learning coping and team building skills, and will be challenged to think critically.
Moving to the Next Step Residential Phase
After their time in the outdoor wilderness environment, teens may earn the privilege of moving into the Next Step residential phase of Shepherds Hill. Teens who have demonstrated responsible actions in decision making, maturity of character, and growth are awarded the opportunity to move to the Next Step phase by moving into a home on campus. This next step prepares your teen for the “real world.” Here your teen will develop skills for a more seamless transition back into your home and into society. Privileges and personal liberties are also restored as your teen learns to develop character and integrity in a more home-like environment.
Preparing Your Teen for the Future
Shepherds Hill Academy is proud to provide your troubled teen with an on-campus, fully accredited junior and senior high school. Our academy is staffed with Georgia certified instructors, offering your student a quality education in addition to their therapy. Many students come to Shepherds Hill in poor academic standing, but leave proudly holding their hard earned high school diploma! The transformation and one-on-one attention is essential to the development of your teen.
We also encourage students to get a jump start on college. Preparing your teen for life after Shepherds Hill Academy is foundational to our success. We offer test prep for the SAT and ACT as part of our daily curriculum.
