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.
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.
Designed to help girls get back on track in life. Girls gain confidence and poise, and learn the necessary skills to prepare for their future.
We specifically focus on improving: Self-Awareness, Self-Regulation, Motivation, Empathy, and Social Skills.
Progress is based on a collaborative and collective effort of the girl’s counselor, direct care staff, and the parents. To move to higher levels in the program, girls must prove themselves to be qualified and mature enough to go to the next level.
