Evangelhouse is a therapeutic boarding school for girls in Pennsylvania and across the entire United States. We enroll girls from all over the US and international enrollments from 5 countries and counting! We have many students from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and surrounding areas.
The Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school was established in 1995 to serve Christian families with a quality residential treatment option for troubled teen girls from Pennsylvania and beyond. Evangelhouse pioneered a treatment model that blends licensed behavioral healthcare with the structure of a traditional Christian boarding school.
Therapeutic Program to Overcome Bullying
At Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school for girls, we are an ideal environment to help teen girls learn how to overcome the trauma of being bullied. Cyberbullying has become a common topic in therapeutic research today. Being bullied online has surpassed bullying as the most common kind of harassment experienced by teen girls in the United States.
Teens can use Snapchat, Instagram, Tik Tok, and Twitter to communicate with one another and other positive identity development uses. That being said, being online can cause a lot of different problems for a variety of reasons. Social media has many positive uses, but its negatives can include low self-esteem due to constant comparison with others, feelings of being “ugly” or not having enough friends, and it also exposes young girls to being bullied online.
While peer pressure isn’t a new problem, being online and using social media apps has elevated it to new heights. Sexting, for example, is a big source of concern for many families. We provide a positive Christian environment where we seek to instill the core values girls today need.
At Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school, our girls develop character and build their relationship skills. As a result, they are able to act in a mature and responsible manner online when they transition back home. Instead of socializing online with no supervision, girls at Evangelhouse therapeutic boarding school socialize in the therapeutic setting with counselors and other trained staff observing or participating in the conversation.
