60 Years Success

Teen Challenge has for six decades turned around the lives of teens who have gotten on the wrong track in life, restoring their future and their relationships. Lakeland Girls Academy is a residential home and school specifically designed for girls who are struggling with life-controlling issues. The campus residence and school are located in a home-like facility nestled in a beautiful community in Lakeland, Florida.


Care and Service

Girls in this boarding school leave their attitude of entitlement and emotional turmoil behind, growing in care and concern for others and for their own futures. Spiritual and behavioral counseling and mentoring leads the girls to healthy and peaceful habits. Activities here are designed to encourage teamwork, communication and relational skills, while counseling helps the girls to understand their own feelings and motivations.

When dealing with troubled teens, there are many types of residential schools which can help troubled girls. Not all Christian boarding schools work with struggling teenagers. Programs which specifically help teenagers in trouble are typically referred to as therapeutic boarding schools or reform schools. For troubled teenagers in need of spiritual guidance, Christian boarding schools are a great answer. Christian boarding schools provide Bible-centered treatment for at-risk teens, as opposed to other alternative schools and therapeutic boarding schools schools without a Christian emphasis.
