Christian Boarding Schools for Girls Vs Outpatient Therapy

Outpatient therapy offers few, if any, advantages over Christian boarding schools for girls like Evangelhouse. Consider the amount of time a teen typically spends in outpatient therapy. Two hours per week is simply not enough time to make real changes.

When the therapist interacts with the teen during the day, we can see what causes them to become upset, and where they are having problems. Often, people are blind to their own emotional triggers or lack the insight to see what is causing them problems socially.

At Evangelhouse, we can be there with your daughter as she goes through her daily routine. Because of this, we don’t necessarily need for her to tell us what happened; our therapists were likely there and saw their interactions first-hand. This offers us a huge advantage over outpatient therapy.

Academics at Evangelhouse Christian Boarding School for Girls

Evangelhouse Christian boarding school for girls is a fully approved academic institution that can help students enhance their self-esteem, and self-efficacy, and become lifelong learners. While it is a fact that all pupils can learn; we recognize that some students need emotional and individualized support from their learning community to achieve their goals.

One great advantage of attending Evangelhouse Christian boarding school For girls in Pennsylvania is our smaller class size which allows for greater personalized attention. This also allows for more hands-on, experiential learning to occur. We believe our students gain a richer, more meaningful learning experience when they are able to use appropriate learning tools in the field.  Another benefit to our program is that our academic curriculum runs year-round. This calendar lends itself well to filling in the gaps your child may have missed in their previous academic experience.

    Why Residential Treatment for Girls Works

    Research strongly supports the case for residential treatment.  Multiple studies and “meta-analysis,” or the study of studies, support superior outcomes for a therapeutic community approach, which emphasizes peer roles in treatment, compared to standard residential treatment.

    At Evangelhouse Christian girls boarding school, we utilize a therapeutic community approach to create a healthy peer culture.  Students experience the social atmosphere, group therapeutic process, and spiritual tone of campus life. We nurture a healthy peer culture that emphasizes social responsibility, accountability, and leadership. The staff leads weekly interactive small-group meetings to teach students character development within their current social interactions. Here students learn relevant ways to apply biblical teachings to their actions. As students progress, they learn to look beyond themselves to provide encouragement and support for others.A single-gender boarding school can help a teenager develop independence without the distractions of romance, allowing them to focus on leadership, athletics, and academics.

    Therapy is the cornerstone of our treatment program. Click on a button to learn about individual therapy, group therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy offered at Evangelhouse Christian Academy.

    This school literally has given my daughter her life back and has given us the tools to help her and herself into the future. This is a full circle, all encompassing program. From admission to graduation. Do not delete this school from your list! I almost did because it was far away...and...to be honest, I wasn't sure how I felt about a "Christian" school. Whether you are religious or not, don't be put off or think your child is going to be brainwashed. She's not! It is a part of the day and I thought my daughter would hate it (and so did she). But it turns out she found great comfort there and her faith! I thoroughly investigated this school. In addition to my own research, I also hired a company that researches and screens these types of programs. I also had my daughter's psychiatrist interview the director! I've done all the researching and investigating for you. Whatever your daughter's issues may be, I probably have them covered! My daughter's diagnosis' range from ADHD, Anxiety, High Risk Behavior, Adoption issues/trauma and psychosis. Do not waste your time. Don't wait for Spring or end of school or whatever timeline. Act now! The happiest day of my life was delivering her to the ECA. I actually slept for the first time in years. Knowing my daughter was finally getting the help she so deserved. Therapy, school, socialization, faith, responsibility, accountability, self-worth and confidence. We all ask or pray for help. Consider ECA as prayers answered.

    I graduated from ECA 4 years ago, and I can genuinely say that this place is truly amazing. It can and will help your daughter if she wants to put in the work. The staff and the girls I was with all made me feel like family and that I mattered. This place really saved my life, so if you are looking for a place that will help your daughter please send her here, I promise they will take care of her.

    We had a troubled teen. I found ECA online. I made a call and set up a visit. We were looking for a place that included God and biblical principles in their program. Now that our child has finished the program, WOW! Thank you ECA leadership. Every one on staff believes in the program. It shows! and it works!!

    This school has been an absolute Godsend for my daughter and our family. We realized a few months ago that she needed residential treatment. After an exhaustive search, we found the wonderful people at Evangelhouse. They do an amazing job keeping parents updated and are always available when we call. I have been impressed with the way that they are firm with the girls but also loving and caring. The process there is amazing, especially since it involves the family also. We were so happy to find a place that provides professional counseling with a Christian focus.

    Two years ago we were struggling to get our daughter on the right track. We had tried everything and knew that she would need to be placed in a residential treatment facility. We had searched for at least a year to find the right place. Were looking for a Christian, all girls, small, therapeutic program not too far from Texas. Somehow, someway, God lead us to the Evangelhouse website. We are so glad that we took his direction because it has meant a world of difference for our daughter, our family, our marriage, and our peace of mind! Evangelhouse has taken a once broken, low-self esteem, miserable, self-centered, hostile, angry, self-doubting teenager in crisis and changed her into a Christ-centered, selfless, self-loving, servant-hearted, mature, sensible, responsible, thoughtful young adult. ECA implements a program that strips each student down to the bare necessities in order for them to focus on what is truly important in life. I don't know where we would be without ECA. I now know what it is like to have a functional, happy, and peaceful family life.
