If you are a hurting parent with a teen who is struggling, allow us to share with you the heart of Shepherd’s Hill Academy wilderness therapeutic boarding schools.  We’ve worked with troubled teens for 20 years, and we can identify with what this is doing to your family.  We know and work daily with the underlying causes of teen rebellion and misbehavior.  Our caring residential and therapeutic counseling team can make a real difference in your teenager’s life, just as we have done for so many others.

You may have already been in counseling, and that hasn’t seemed to improve your situation.  Perhaps you’ve been informed of the advantages of therapeutic boarding schools, or it was suggested to place your teen in therapeutic boarding schools for its long term results.

Shepherd’s Hill Academy therapeutic boarding schools are a fully accredited junior and senior high academy.  During the year stay, your teen will continue their education in our gender separate classrooms on campus.  As a supplement, we also offer Georgia Virtual School, so your teen can complete all the classes he/she needs to complete the school year, or to graduate and receive their diploma.

We offer an Equine Assisted Program (EAP) which provides mental, physical, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual healing to our students by harnessing the powerful connection between horses and people.  Our EAP instructors are Equine Assisted Growth & Learning Association (EAGALA) certified, and are trained to use horses as a tool to work with troubled teens in changing negative behaviors.

The wilderness aspect of our therapeutic boarding schools naturally creates an environment for daily therapeutic activities.  Our wilderness program relieves your teen from bad habits and destructive peer pressures, creates self-reliance as well as teamwork which are major contributors for them to grow into responsible young men and women.  Group accountability, family and individual therapeutic sessions with our counseling team contribute to our student’s behavioral changes and emotional well being.
So, if you are experiencing chaos in your home from a teenager who is having trouble with today’s culture, consider Shepherd’s Hill Academy therapeutic boarding schools. We understand your child, and what your family is going through, we genuinely do.  Kids get another chance at childhood, while learning how to properly approach and address the critical issues of adulthood. It’s therapy for the whole family, as parents also learn through our retreats and constant contact.

Allow us to help you find peace and comfort for your family in your home again.  Please call us at (706) 703-4188 to learn more about our therapeutic boarding school.  Or, fill out our inquiry form to learn more.
