Do You Have a Troubled Teen in Morgantown? Would you Consider a Residential Program in Georgia?
Do troubled teens reside in the Morgantown, West Virginia area? Do you have a troubled teen? Perhaps your teen has been getting into trouble, expressing anger or depression, or been kicked out of school. You may have tried counseling with no results. We would like you to consider our outdoor residential wilderness boarding school. Have you heard of Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA)?
Shepherds Hill Academy is a residential therapeutic boarding school with an outdoor wilderness aspect, specifically designed for troubled teens. Shepherds Hill is located in Martin, GA; roughly 2 hours from Atlanta. Although we are not located in Morgantown, WV, Shepherds Hill Academy has been assisting troubled teens and their families all across the country for decades. We’ve found that oftentimes distance and time away from their current environment is just what your teen needs as an incentive for change.
We also believe that change is cultivated through a relationship with Jesus Christ. As a result, Shepherds Hill is an unapologetically Christ-centered private academy. We also believe that offering a first-rate education is foundational for your teen’s success. By providing personal mentoring, individual counseling, and equine therapy, SHA helps to guide your teen to grow as a young adult making mature and responsible decisions.

Shepherds Hill Academy is best described as an ideal combination of the best aspects of an outdoor therapeutic wilderness program and a Christian boarding school. Our program features several forms of therapy. Components of our program feature daily 24/7 mentorship, individual and group counseling and equine therapy.
When your teen arrives at Shepherds Hill Academy they will take part in our carefully created outdoor wilderness therapy program. Our outdoor program is often described as “unplugged.” By removing your teen from media, pop culture, and digital devices your teen will learn the necessity of critical thinking, hard work and dedication. They will be given the opportunity to contemplate more meaningful issues of life not found in using technology.
After completion of the outdoor wilderness phase, your teen may be eligible to take part in our Next Step residential program. This phase takes place when teens have demonstrated, in their behavior, responsible decision making skills and actions. During this phase, teens move in to a home on-campus and privileges and individual responsibilities are restored. This program is ideal for your teen to demonstrate their newly learned healthier behaviors in order to enable them to confidently transition back into your home, the work place, another school or college.

At Shepherds Hill Academy we can equip troubled teens with the skills they need to become successful young adults.
