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. When your daughter completes her academic program at Evangelhouse Christian Academy she will attend a graduation ceremony and receive an accredited diploma. A benefit of receiving an accredited diploma is that our students may transfer credits if applicable.
