Lakeland Girls Academy is a nonprofit Christian boarding school for girls, age 13-17, who are self-destructing, getting in trouble, or generally struggling with life and are harming their future. We offer a year-round residential program where girls benefit from academic repair, mentoring, life coaching, and 24/7 care. We help girls soar emotionally, spiritually and academically while providing a fun, fulfilling, and safe learning environment.
This Christian year-round home and school is designed just for girls, ages 13-17, who are struggling with rebellion, fear, emotional detachment or other life-controlling issues.
Teen Challenge has for 60 years turned around the lives of teens who have gotten on the wrong track in life, restoring their future and their relationships.
Girls turn from an attitude of entitlement to an attitude of caring for others, for their parents, and for their own futures…a true transformation.
The girls take high school courses weekdays, year-round, so they improve their GPA as well as to retake courses, take elective courses, and get ahead.
Lakeland Girls Academy has a rich history of providing a challenging and highly active atmosphere designed to help girls get back on track in life. Girls learn the necessary skills to gain confidence and prepare for the future.
LGA specifically focuses on improving: 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.
