Christian Boarding School for Girls in Birmingham

Evangelhouse Christian Boarding School for Girls Focus

At Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls in Birmingham, no unchecked bullying is allowed. To put it mildly, a significant portion of public schools in Birmingham are known for maintaining disruptive, chaotic environments. Long-standing social and legal tendencies have created environments that can only be described as chaotic and unregulated, which foster casual bullying and sporadic violent outbursts. Such improper conduct is uncommon at a Christian institution because of its moral standards and stringent code of conduct.

Our Christian boarding school for girls maintains a disciplined, structured environment. Through our therapeutic and milieu staff members who act as role models for our girls, we foster encouragement of dignity and respect for other people. This cultural norm at Evangelhouse is greatly aided by clear norms and students’ expectations of self-disciplined behavior.

Another positive attribute of Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls is our focus on common ideals. Being around like-minded people who have received the same Christian education on a daily basis immensely aids in helping your child mature into a responsible adult who knows how to live each day in God’s love with like moral neighbors.

We enroll girls from Birmingham and nearby cities due to our proximity and ability to work with Birmingham public and private schools for credit transfer.

The unique setting at Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls provides a safe community that we believe allows our students to grow and study. In our community, we eliminate many of the outside world’s stressors that can hinder our residents from performing well academically and feeling well emotionally. 

Many of the stressors in our outside world may create overwhelming situations for our teens that are difficult to cope with. In the interest of fostering beneficial change in our teenage girls, we help them to develop coping strategies. We provide positive community experiences for our girls through community service projects and a supportive milieu.

Community Service at Evangelhouse

It has been demonstrated through academic research that participating in community service may help young people in a variety of ways before, during, and even after their high school years. The advantages of volunteering may impact students’ life at Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls on many levels—professionally, academically, and emotionally.

Students at Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls in Birmingham have involvement in community service projects that are supervised by the school. Our graduates have told us that the skills they learned through their volunteering at Evangelhouse were useful to them once they started looking for a career. Volunteering teaches them important skills that girls typically can’t get in a classroom. Better communication, teamwork, creativity, problem-solving, and time management are a few examples of these abilities. Employers frequently seek employees with experience in these fields.

Through volunteering at Evangelhouse, girls gain confidence and life experience from community involvement. Students get the chance to work with a wide range of diverse people via their service. They have a feeling of social awareness as a result of this. Our girls gain tolerance and understanding while experiencing firsthand how they can make a difference in their neighborhood.

Therapeutic Milieu Programming at Evangelhouse

The main goal of Milieu treatment programming is to eliminate the stressors that can trigger negative emotions from our teenage residents. In turn, when we achieve de-risking of our residents, we produce a therapeutic setting.  Under the protection of a controlled therapeutic setting, our residents are able to develop new coping mechanisms. These new coping mechanisms become their personal set of tools to better cope with and understand the world. As our residents become more familiar with the routine at Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls, their ability to feel safe increases. Likewise, in a mutually safe environment, the peer group is able to build trust and make great progress in promoting emotional growth within each individual.

There are many advantages to participating in Milieu therapy. One advantage is that our teenagers learn to accept responsibility for their own actions. Another advantage is that they learn how to open up and disclose their difficulties. Our peer group receives regular feedback during therapy and this allows our residents to observe how their actions affect the community. This therapy setting offers them time to process and reflect on the consequences of the actions or decisions they have made in the past and how they can improve moving forward. 

At Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls in Birmingham, our residents will participate in milieu therapy and gain coping skills that will help them in the real world.

Traditional Values for Modern Times

At Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls, we have seen many issues over the years plague young girls in grades 6-12. Today’s issues are more profound than ever. It used to be that just picking a career, or finding a marital partner was the most a girl had to worry about. 

Today’s modern fast-paced world is much different. Girls go online to socialize and connect. They are in social competitions for likes on social media, and they are pressured to take photos showing their best sides in the public for followers. Online bullying and other cyber pressures are unique to this generation of girls. 

Below are 5 issues that are different today for girls:

“Fitting in”

From buying the right clothes to hanging out with the right people, fitting in today is harder than ever. Part of this is due to how publicly the typical teen lives thanks to the internet. Often, the pressure to fit in is too much. This is when the outside help of a therapeutic boarding school like Evangelhouse is warranted.

Motivation

Teenagers have gotten more secluded in their virtual worlds. No longer are teens motivated by getting their own car or a job. It’s often difficult to find motivation for a young teen that does not involve something related to a screen. At Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls, we help girls find that inner spark and re-discover who they are. 

Disrespect

Teens are surrounded by disrespect today. They see it in the movies they watch and the online games they play. It’s pervasive in modern music as well. Even female “role models” in modern pop music sing songs that are often disrespectful to themselves. At Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls, we help young ladies build self-respect through our positive peer culture.

Depression and Anxiety

Interacting mainly online has been linked to depression and anxiety. We look at photos of others online and it’s just human nature to compare. Being cooped up at home and cut off from the rest of the world only adds to the sensation.

Teens are suffering from depression and anxiety perhaps more than ever before. Many teens’ online “friends” will post only the best photos on vacation after taking multiple shots. This leaves followers feeling inadequate and that they are somehow missing out.

At Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls, we treat depression, anxiety, and a host of other issues. Individual, family, and group therapy interventions are structured within the Evangelhouse Lifeleaf™ system. This state-of-the-art system challenges students to work beyond symptom improvement. This unique integrative approach leads students to maturity, insight, and self-awareness. The blend of Christian values and professional clinical psychotherapy includes:

  • Professional assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning
  • Weekly individual therapy
  • Weekly group therapy
  • Parent and family therapy
  • Weekly therapeutic emphasis groups
  • Weekly DBT Therapy skills group
