When seeking the cost of a Christian therapeutic boarding school, like anything else, it is important to compare apples with apples. The combinations are endless. The safety, quality, and degree of care, along with the concentration and competency of care, and the costs vary widely from program to program and from school to school. This is not to mention the priceless value that is so often overlooked when it comes to spiritual and eternal realities.
We ensure that Shepherds Hill Academy will provide the utmost care for your family, which is why Shepherds Hill Academy is endorsed by some of the world’s top Christian leaders. Shepherds Hill Academy offers a multifaceted array of therapeutic and Christ-centered approaches to healing and education and spares nothing to maximize your child and your family’s greatest chance for healing and transformation.

At Shepherd’s Hill Academy, the private pay all-inclusive tuition of our program is $8,000 per month. Program tuition can often be offset by insurance, discounts or scholarships.
