Christian Boarding School for Girls Who are Struggling

The Highlands Girls Academy is a residential therapeutic Christian boarding school for teenage girls struggling with life-controlling issues. We offer a structured therapeutic Christian environment that emphasizes character development, spiritual growth and personal responsibility. Our non-profit program is designed to develop the entire young girl spiritually, socially, academically and physically.

For over 5 years, our Christian boarding school for girls has shown that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ changes people’s lives. To that end, students participate in chapel services, local youth group, and in biblical studies. We surround our students all day long with a Christian environment to help facilitate life change through the witness and guidance of our staff and counselors.

Our therapeutic program and boarding school entails counseling; both individually and in group meetings. Students in our boarding school are challenged to interact with school and counseling staff and their peers. It is an environment that balances discipline with personal responsibility to create a positive peer culture. Our goal is to help students to make positive choices based as a result of a genuine change of heart. Community service, special projects and outings also help our boarding school students change their focus to serving others.

We are a non-public Christian boarding school registered with the State of Missouri Department of Education. Apex Learning is accredited through AdvancED, the parent organization of The Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC). These organizations bring together educators worldwide who support the quality academic standards required by colleges and universities.

Our 20-acre all girls boarding school campus is a special place where students and families experience peace as they work through the process of changing their motivations in life and restoring relationships. The property includes areas to play soccer, volleyball, basketball, softball, swimming, and picnic.
