Are you looking for a boarding school for your teen in Pensacola? Would you consider a residential program and school in Georgia?
Are you looking for a residential program for your troubled teen? Is your teen misbehaving, angry, or unable to pay attention in school? Do you fear they are putting themselves and their future at risk? This is without a doubt a difficult time for your family. You will need a safe place that puts your child’s recovery and safety first. Let us introduce you to Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA).
While Shepherds Hill Academy is not located in Pensacola, Florida it is located just next door in Georgia! The distance may be just what your teen needs to get back on track. We have found over the past few decades of working with troubled students that removing them from their current environment is often the catalyst they need for change.
Shepherds Hill Academy has also found that genuine and lasting change comes from the transformation of a relationship with Jesus Christ. At SHA, we are unapologetically Christ-centered.
We also believe that a top rated education is foundational for your troubled teen’s recovery. Our accredited academy, combined with mentoring, counseling, and equine therapy, is designed to help teens develop character, decision making and life skills.
What is Shepherds Hill Academy Like?
Shepherds Hill Academy is located in northeast Georgia in the town of Martin. Our program can best be described as a hybrid between a therapeutic outdoor wilderness program and a Christian boarding school. Our model consists of several methods of counseling; including individual, group and family counseling, and equine therapy.
The first phase of the Shepherds Hill Academy program consists of our outdoor therapeutic residential phase. Outside of the classroom, the residential program features an ‘unplugged’ element where teens are removed from the distractions of media and modern conveniences. This portion of the program is carefully planned to build trust and develop teamwork and critical thinking skills.
The second phase of the program at Shepherds Hill Academy is the Next Step residential program. Once a teen has worked through our outdoor wilderness program and has proven responsible for their decisions and have improved behavioral changes, they are eligible to be promoted to our Next Step program. During this time your teen will move into a modern home on campus. Here they will be given more responsibility and privileges. This portion of the program was built to assist your teen in transitioning back into everyday life and contemplate their future.
Our Accredited Boarding School Features Certified Teachers and College Prep
Whether your teen is building character and growth in our residential outdoor program or is expanding their new-found skills and talents in our residential Next Step program, they will also be engaging in rigorous studies in our fully-accredited on-campus academy. Shepherds Hill Academy is a junior and senior high school staffed by highly qualified Georgia certified instructors. Our qualified and compassionate team of teachers and staff are committed to helping your teen succeed. As part of our standard curriculum, your teen will prepare for their future through SAT and ACT preparation.
Many troubled teens have come to Shepherds Hill Academy with poor grades, poor attitude, or a poor attention span. Our one-to-one mentoring is driven to assist your teen to catch up on school work, and even excel! Many of our students not only leave with a hard earned diploma but with college acceptance letters or career plans as well!
At Shepherds Hill Academy we desire to equip your troubled teen with the skills needed to become a confident, productive, and respectful young adult. The combination of the unplugged outdoor program, certified equine therapy, and top-rated education is designed to bring focus to your child’s life.
