Therapeutic Boarding School that Specializes in Anxiety

Evangelhouse Academy for girls is a therapeutic boarding school that specializes in treating anxiety in teen girls at a time when they are at their most vulnerable. We accommodate girls from grades 6-12.

We recognize that the reasons for your daughter’s anxiety are unique to her and are impacted by a variety of factors, including her genetics, physical health, life events, thinking patterns, distress tolerance levels, and capacity to engage in healthy relationships. Each of these areas is handled by our therapy staff at Evangelhouse Academy in a unique strategy. In a small group of no more than 16 adolescent females, each student will learn how to develop and achieve objectives while living in a serene atmosphere of the southeastern US.

Anxiety is the most common mental health issue among teenagers, with teenage females experiencing clinical levels of anxiety twice as often as boys. According to studies, up to 2.4 million adolescent females in the United States endure crippling anxiety each year. If anxiety is not addressed, rates of anxiety quadruple from youth to young adulthood. Anxiety is also at the foundation of a slew of other issues. Treating your daughter’s anxiety will also address the underlying causes of any other problems she may be experiencing.

Is Evangelhouse Christian Academy a good fit for your daughter with Anxiety?

Is she afflicted by emotions? Parents often state that their daughter’s troublesome behavior begins at home and then spreads to her school and social life.

Is she capable of “holding the family hostage”? Many parents at Evangelhouse Christian Academy indicate that their girls can disrupt family efforts to progress or make decisions.

Is she avoiding things or refusing to engage? School may have gotten too socially or emotionally demanding for her, so she seeks methods to avoid going. She also no longer communicates with friends or participates in clubs. As a result, I’m spending more time with technology or reading books.

Is she having trouble with her studies? Families frequently express their dissatisfaction with their child’s performance in school, claiming that basic learning strategies are ineffective. As a result, her efforts and grades begin to deteriorate.

Are there any difficulties in forming and sustaining friendships? Parents report that their child struggles to form and maintain friendships. Because she is demanding and bossy in her relationships, she frequently loses close friends.

If any of the above statements apply to your daughter and you haven’t seen her improve in any of these areas, Evangelhouse boarding school for anxiety for girls may be a good fit.

This is a difficult decision for many families. We’re here to assist you and your family in determining whether Evangelhouse Christian Academy is the appropriate fit for your child.

Spiritual Solutions

Students who attend Evangelhouse have grown up in a Christian home. Our goal is to see them experience a renewed relationship with God and bring that passion back to their own family’s denominational heritage. Our non-denominational Christian values permeate all segments of the school.

Licensed Therapists

We are designed for students who struggle with social problems, emotional distress, trauma, depression, family conflict, anxiety, the misuse of social media or self-destructive habits. If your daughter has issues beyond our scope of treatment, Evangelhouse may not be the ideal fit.

Focus on Physical Health

Whether it is through our English riding program or our fine arts activities, students learn new ways of viewing their physical capabilities. The structure of the exercise schedule, nutritious meals and good sleep hygiene build on these activities to bring a new level of physical health to each student.

Academic Solutions

Licensed teachers administer a nationally accredited curriculum to accommodate a variety of student needs including students with learning challenges, emotional problems, or mood disorders.  Career testing is encouraged for each student so that they return home academically empowered with purpose.

Focused Population

We are not a catch-all program. We are girls only, and we don’t accept students that have issues that might be disruptive to the therapeutic community. We are purposefully small with only 16 girls in residence at a time.

We Build Social Skills

Our small setting cultivates 360-degree feedback from peers, parents, and professional staff.  Such feedback hones students’ self-awareness and provides enlightenment on how their behavior choices affect themselves and others.

Christian Values

Evangelhouse Christian Academy is a Christian boarding school based upon biblical principles. An authentic relationship with Jesus Christ is nurtured and developed within the school’s setting and through local church involvement.

Preparing for Home

From the first day at Evangelhouse, we are preparing our girls for a successful transition back home. Our focus is returning your daughter back to her home environment happier, healthier, and better prepared for life.

When to Choose a Therapeutic Boarding School for Anxiety

Each therapeutic boarding school for girls is unique in some manner. Despite the differences, there are several intrinsic characteristics that contribute to why residential treatment is so effective.

The constant monitoring and 24/7 assistance provided by therapeutic boarding schools is a big advantage over other levels of care. This continual care and monitoring helps assess the progress our girls make, identify areas of trouble, and prevent relapse.

Distance – from the student’s past. Sometimes parents are concerned about moving their daughter miles away to a program like Evangelhouse. We’ve found that distance from one’s current situation puts things into perspective, removes a person from the immediate stressors of their current situation, as well as surrounds them with healthy role models in a positive environment.

Different therapeutic modalities — Evangelhouse offers more therapeutic modalities than outpatient facilities, and our positive-peer culture offers more than just talk therapy. We use a holistic approach, treating the mind, body, and spirit. Trauma treatment, equestrian therapy, group therapy, and other therapies such as DBT are all utilized.

Students at Evangelhouse get access to a wider range of therapy modalities and more frequent regular sessions than in outpatient therapy. Having daily access to a therapist can help students heal faster and build trust. 

Because therapists at Evangelhouse can see their patients in a variety of settings, this interaction in our community fosters the therapeutic bond, and not just within the confines of an office. Psychotherapists and counselors frequently lead therapy groups, accompany students on excursions or lunches, and engage them in experiential activities. This permits therapists to visit patients in different contexts and learn more about them.

Focus on Anxiety Treatment for Girls

At Evangelhouse Christian Academy, we focus on anxiety in adolescent and teen girls and related issues.  At our therapeutic boarding school, your daughter will be in an environment free from the influences of drugs and alcohol, severe sexual issues, and violence.

Anxiety subsets we treat:

GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) is an anxiety disorder marked by persistent anxiety, increased concern, and tension, even when there is little or no cause for it.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety condition marked by recurring, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and/or repetitive activities (compulsions). Hand washing, counting, checking, and cleaning are common repetitive habits conducted in the hopes of preventing or removing obsessive thoughts. However, executing these so-called “rituals” only gives momentary respite, and failing to do so significantly increases anxiety.

Panic Disorder is an anxiety illness marked by sudden and recurring bouts of great terror, as well as physical symptoms such as chest pain, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, or stomach discomfort.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety condition that can develop after being exposed to a traumatic incident or encounter in which significant bodily injury happened or was threatened. Violent personal attacks, natural or human-caused disasters, accidents, or military conflicts are all examples of traumatic events that can lead to PTSD.

Social Anxiety (or Social Anxiety Disorder) is an anxiety disorder characterized by extreme self-consciousness and overwhelming anxiety in normal social interactions. Social phobia can be restricted to a single circumstance – such as a fear of speaking in official or informal settings, or of eating or drinking in front of others – or, in its most extreme form, can manifest itself nearly wherever a person is among other people.

What are the Causes of Teenage Anxiety?

Anxiety is caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, and psychological variables, developmental factors, and even personality features, as with other diseases.

Bullying and Interpersonal Conflict Making friends is crucial for surviving school and adolescence’s stress. Many teenagers who have been rejected or bullied by their classmates have negative relationship views and fear they will never fit in. If your kid has been bullied at school, he or she may not feel comfortable talking about it, but it is crucial to watch for indications of despair and loneliness.

Attachment Problems Teens who failed to form healthy relationships as children are more likely to develop social anxiety and a shaky sense of self as a result of peer rejection and family strife.

Events Stress is a natural part of life, but kids who are exposed to several stressful life events or everyday pressures at the same time are more likely to struggle with anxiety. A stressful lifestyle, such as not getting enough sleep or having too much on one’s plate, contributes considerably to the development of anxiety.

High Self-Esteem and Low Self-Expectations Teens who are extremely responsible and perfectionistic, as well as those who are eager to please, avoid disagreement, or have poor assertiveness in general, are more prone to develop anxiety.

Social media is always present in the lives of teenagers. It’s unsurprising that their self-worth and worldview are linked to their replies to social media posts. They find it difficult not to compare their lives and social relationships to what they see on social media.

Therapeutic Boarding School for Anxiety Treatment

At Evangelhouse Christian Academy, we are an ideal environment to help teen girls learn how to overcome the anxiety and 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, 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 socialize in the therapeutic setting with counselors and other trained staff observing or participating in the conversation.

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.
