Lakeland Grace Academy is a nonprofit Teen Challenge residential program for girls who are struggling with life-controlling issues. We offer a year-round boarding school opportunity for girls to receive intense counseling, academic repair, life coaching and addiction counseling (if needed). We will help your daughter soar emotionally, spiritually and academically while providing a safe and loving environment.
Lakeland Grace Academy is a year-round all girl boarding school designed just for girls ages 13-17 who are struggling with various life issues.
Surveys have confirmed an 86% success rate for Teen Challenge. Emotional intelligence is four times greater upon graduating than upon enrollment.
Besides having one of the highest success rates in the nation, the Teen Challenge organization has restored family relationships for over 50 years.
Students take high school courses weekdays, year-round, so they improve their GPA as well as to retake courses, take elective courses, and get ahead.
We help girls with behavioral or rebellion issues, low self-esteem, or depression. We provide a unique atmosphere with personal attention to help each girl get back on track and develop positive life strategies. Our students learn the necessary skills to prepare them for the future while they become confident and secure.
Progress of our students is based on a collaborative and collective effort of the child’s counselor, staff, and parents. Counseling is provided through a faith-based holistic approach and is unique to each student’s needs. To move to higher levels in our program, students must prove themselves to be worthy of that level.

We believe that every girl can have a unique “Journey of a Lifetime” when she discovers and accepts her God-ordained purpose and calling in life. She then becomes empowered with a God-given authority, a God-given identity, and a unfathomable measure of agapé love that can be so powerful that it must only come from God himself.
