The Clinically Driven, Christian Focusedô Therapeutic Boarding School for Girls 

Evangelhouse Christian Academy is a specialty, fourteen-bed therapeutic boarding school for girls offering 6th through 12th grades. The academy offers a unique integration of licensed clinical therapy with non-denominational Christian values. The school’s DBT and EMDR therapy are ideal to treat students who may internalize emotional distress, depression, anxiety, and social problems.

Our mission is to serve as the premier Christian option in the marketplace of high-quality residential treatment centers.  If you are a Christian parent with a troubled teen daughter and you are comparing residential treatment centers, therapeutic boarding schools, wilderness programs, boot camps, drug rehab centers, or other psychiatric treatment - you don't have to abandon your Christian faith in order to get the highest quality clinical care.  Evangelhouse offers a Christian focused treatment model supporting your values and integrating spiritual, therapeutic, academic, social and physical areas of wellness.

More than a school...a place to become rooted, grow and mature.
