We are a Therapeutic Boarding School for girls from Georgia. We serve girls from Georgia and across the US. We are just a short drive away from anywhere in Georgia including Atlanta and we welcome scheduled tours from interested families.
Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school was established in 1995 to serve Christian families with a quality residential treatment option for troubled teen girls. Since then, it has evolved to become the premier non-denominational Christian option in the marketplace of high-quality teen residential treatment centers.
At Evangelhouse, we get so many girls from Georgia we created this page for Georgia families looking for a Christian all-girls boarding school. Girls in large cities like Atlanta, Columbus, Augusta, Macon, and Savannah face unique mental health challenges.
Therapeutic Boarding School for Girls or a Georgia RTC?
Choosing Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school for girls over local Georgia residential treatment centers (RTC’s) may be the best for your daughter. It all depends on the circumstances behind your concern and your daughter’s specific needs. Our program is a Christian-based, highly sophisticated clinical treatment at the forefront of teen behavioral healthcare. Evangelhouse Chrisitan Academy is designed to meet the requirements of teen girls in grades 6-12.
While a residential treatment center generally offers a higher level of psychiatric care, this higher level comes with trade-offs. Students at residential treatment centers will be more severe in their illness. This means more exposure to potential hazards like violence, anger, or talk of drugs and alcohol. Residential treatment centers tend to be more hospital-like, and therapeutic boarding schools like Evangelhouse tend to be more home-like.
We feel that the home-like setting is more appropriate for the level of girls we accept. After all, we are preparing our girls for the transition home. Therefore, an environment like the Evangelhouse campus is a better place to practice new coping skills and ways of interacting and socializing versus a stale hospital-like setting. Because our girls live together on campus, they can help each other in academic and extracurricular activities.
However, that’s not to say Evangelhouse Christian Academy is lacking in our clinical department. Our focus is just more on repairing relationships with family and learning new coping skills versus medication management. Our clinical program includes family therapy techniques as we firmly believe in the strength and vitality of family bonds, along with finding support spiritually in our non-denominational setting.
Parental involvement in residential treatment is the most important aspect in establishing favorable long-term outcomes for your daughter, according to research. Parental participation is actively participating in their child’s treatment as well as their own treatment and progress.
Our program focuses on repairing broken relationships and helping family members to reunite and grow their fractured relationships. We have four family workshops hosted on campus each year. Our workshops are known for being effective, empowering, and eye-opening.
