We are a Christian Therapeutic Boarding School for girls from Maryland. Located in Louisana, we serve girls from Maryland and across the US. The Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school 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 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.
At Evangelhouse, we get so many girls from Maryland we created this page for Maryland families looking for a Christian all-girls boarding school. Girls in large cities like Baltimore, Columbia, Germantown, and Silver Spring face unique mental health challenges.
Adolescent and Teen Residential Treatment for Girls from Maryland
Our location provides seclusion and security in beautiful natural settings with a small resident population. We’ve learned that small, intimate groups produce greater results for long-term healing and personal growth. It’s important for adolescent females to feel comfortable in their own skin and to create strong peer support networks during the treatment and recovery process.
The therapeutic boarding school program at Evangelhouse emphasizes and promotes community service. There are many benefits that our students receive by participating in this aspect of the program. One benefit is learning by doing to develop strong working relationships. While students are giving back to their communities, they are learning how to become responsible and respectful. They grow to understand that teamwork is established on the basis of trust in that each individual promises to deliver on their responsibilities to the program. The Evangelhouse community service program fosters a friendly social environment that engages our teenage girls to work with staff and colleagues. This aspect of the program in turn nurtures their confidence and trust in each other outside of the academic setting.
Your daughter will benefit by living in a structured community like Evangelhouse. Part of the experience of this community is becoming a member of positive peer culture. Receiving helpful feedback from her peers will be helpful to your daughter as she learns to work with her peer group to overcome challenges. When your daughter experiences positive connections with her peers, it will foster her positive self-esteem and image. The therapist’s role during individual sessions includes facilitation and observation while in the milieu. The therapist also provides feedback and direction. To sum it up, the peer-group connection at Evangelhouse is a vital experience because it will foster your daughter’s positive growth.
