Boarding School Designed for Girls Who are Struggling With Poor Behavior, Academic Failure, or Substance Abuse
At Highlands Academy, we offer a world-class campus and a safe, disciplined and structured Christian environment that emphasizes character development, spiritual growth and personal responsibility. Our therapeutic program and school for girls is designed to develop the whole person spiritually, socially, academically and physically.
Students enrolled in Highland Girls Academy are also enrolled in APEX Learning. Students here both get caught up on their classwork and their grades improve.
We offer a robust schedule of physical activities, including physical education every weekday as well as special outings, horsemanship and wilderness trips.
Highlands Academy accepts girls year-round. The 15-month program works with girls ages 13-17. Contact our admission office or inquire online today to learn more.
“Our daughter was totally rebellious, acting-out, shouting when things wouldn’t go her way, pushing and shoving, lying, sneaking around and drinking. It was awful, all the things that she exposed herself to at such a young age had a hold on her and she was living in total rebellion. We love our daughter and don’t want to watch her destroy her life and her future. So we called Teen Challenge. Within the first couple of weeks we saw changes in her attitude, and within a month’s time my baby girl contacted me and said that she had received Jesus Christ and from that point on she has changed a little more each and every time I see her. I am so proud of her.”
“God used Teen Challenge to save my daughter’s life. Her choices had taken her down a path of destruction that led to a car accident one night when she and a friend had been drinking and taking pills. She could have died that night but instead ended up in jail. I was certain this would be her rock bottom – but instead she became even more defiant over the next few weeks so I had to do something. After our visit to Teen Challenge I had a peace that this was God’s choice for my daughter. The road wasn’t easy but she was able to internalize God’s word and rebuild relationships with her family that we thought had been damaged beyond repair. I would recommend your program for any young girl, troubled or not.”
Our school is fully accredited and your girl will get caught up on her academics while here. Our tuition is
60% less than typical therapeutic boarding schools, but our staff ratio is higher.
