Lakeland Grace Academy is a nonprofit boarding school for girls who are self-destructing or struggling with life-controlling issues. We offer a year-round, highly active environment where girls receive plenty of exercise, adventure, counseling, academic repair, life coaching, and addiction recovery (if needed). We help girls soar emotionally, spiritually and academically while providing a fun, safe and loving environment.
This Christian year-round boarding school is designed just for girls, ages 13-17, who are struggling with rebellion, substance abuse or other life-controlling issues.
Surveys have confirmed an 86% success rate for Teen Challenge. Emotional intelligence is four times greater upon graduating than upon enrollment.
We use a number of therapeutic approaches, most of which are not in a stuffy counseling room, like our Equine Therapy Program, which teaches trust.
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 or academic failure, providing a challenging and highly active atmosphere designed to help each girl get back on track and develop positive life strategies. Girls learn the necessary skills to confidently prepare them for the future.
LGA specifically focuses on improving these qualities in troubled girls: Self-Awareness, Self-Regulation, Motivation, Empathy and Social Skills.
Progress is based on a collaborative and collective effort of the child’s counselor, staff, and parents. To move to higher levels in the program, students must prove themselves to be worthy.

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.
