Student-to-teacher ratios accommodate learning difficulties presented by complex mood and behavior disorders. An integrative classroom day incorporates biblical teaching, group counseling, and academic work. We offer three educational tracts within our boarding school academic program. The individual attention we provide can support students who are advanced academically alongside those who may struggle. Parents seeking a Christian boarding school for girls or a therapeutic boarding school for girls will find no better option than Evangelhouse.
Evangelhouse is the top Christian therapeutic boarding school for girls grades 6-12. Our private campus in Louisiana allows our girls to separate from issues at home so that they may build insight, develop coping skills, and conquer emotional and spiritual problems.
Our highly-capable treatment team includes a psychologist, a psychiatrist, licensed therapists, and certified teachers. We serve families seeking a Christian boarding school for girls with a therapeutic component. We treat girls with depression, anxiety, substance issues, anger, relationship issues, and more. Our family-centered program helps students build resilience, manage and share emotions, and most importantly, enhance relationships with themselves and family members.
We provide a comprehensive, tailored, and family-centered program to help struggling girls and their families. Because each student and family is unique, we spend the first several weeks getting to know your daughter and their requirements for success.
Each individual and family therapy session is then tailored to your daughter’s specific needs. We also provide DBT and group therapy sessions to impart key community concepts. Treatment is provided by licensed therapists, in coordination with a licensed psychologist and psychiatrist.
Evangelhouse Christian Academy is a private boarding school, serving girls grades 6-12, who may be struggling with a variety of issues that have previously limited their success. We provide accredited college-preparatory academics, community involvement opportunities, equine therapy and riding, sports, spiritual growth opportunities, and a low staff-to-student ratio, all within a nurturing, healthy living environment.
Special consideration can be accommodated for students diagnosed with learning disorders, ADHD, ADD, or behavior and mood disorders. Our low student-to-teacher ratio allows for individualized instruction.
Evangelhouse Christian Academy is unique in that we are purposefully small with only 16 girls in residence at a time. We are girls only, and we don’t accept students that have issues that might be disruptive to the therapeutic community. Additionally, our campus is a true home-like setting where students are housed in a 3,000 sq ft residential building, not a stale institutional-like dormitory.
Due to our small size and Christian backdrop, we create a truly home-like setting. Our close-knit setting means the girls and staff get to know each other on a deeper level and create therapeutic bonds that are more difficult to achieve in a larger treatment milieu.
Evangelhouse students are instructed in practical applied life skills through biblical teachings. Students participate in weekly small group discipleship meetings that include a culmination of readings, biblical passages, and psychological principles. For the first stages, students work on character development. As spiritual growth becomes evident in their lives, students are trained in peer leadership.
Our students are surrounded by a spiritually safe environment with conservative Christian values. Students are protected from the influence of unhealthy media, secular music, internet distractions, and destructive elements of today’s pop culture.
The Evangelhouse therapeutic Christian boarding school for girls was established in 1995 to serve Christian families with a quality residential treatment option for troubled teen girls. In its quest to do so, Evangelhouse Christian therapeutic boarding school for girls pioneered a treatment model that blends licensed behavioral healthcare with the structure of a traditional Christian boarding school. Since then, it has evolved to become the premier non-denominational Christian option in the marketplace of high-quality teen residential treatment centers.
The Evangelhouse Christian therapeutic boarding school for girls is designed for students who struggle with social problems, emotional distress, trauma, depression, family conflict, anxiety, the misuse of social media, or self-destructive habits. For some, our school can be a step-down from more intensive treatment programs allowing them a safe transition toward home. For others, it is an alternative to options like residential treatment centers, wilderness programs, boot camps, drug rehab programs, or other psychiatric treatment that provide the wrong environment, are too intensive, or are not a fit for their needs.
