About Our Program

boarding school for girls

Campus Environment

A small and personal escape…far from the struggles and distractions of the “outside” world. Lakeland is a relational safe-haven for self-discovery and growth, but it is not a resort; girls are taught to take responsibility for themselves and for others through regular chores and a structured schedule.


Qualified and
Dedicated Staff Members

Residents receive around the clock care from a staff that is on duty 7 days a week. They provide ongoing positive role models with a high degree personal discipline and accountability. Lakeland’s staff and directors are living examples of a passionate, purpose-driven life. For each, it is not just a job, it is a calling.


Peer Culture

Our positive peer culture influences  each student to develop problem solving skills with peers while taking a “Principle” stand.  It encourages loving “confrontation” by peers versus policing and correction only by adults. While most kids get off track by the negative influences of peers back home, our atmosphere encourages the opposite.



Family relationships are of paramount importance in our program.  Families are invited to attend on-campus family weekends and they take an active part in the girl’s therapy.  Our counselors will keep the family informed throughout the girl’s stay in our program.

THE FOLLOWING IS FOR SEARCH ENGINE USE ONLY: We can also help you in your search for Christian boys ranches, help for troubled teenagers, school for troubled teens or private boarding schools. Our Christian boarding school program helps misbehaving girls who are at risk and having behavioral issues such as anxiety, who are oppositional, with reactive attachment disorders or avoidant personality disorder. Military schools for girls are probably not the best option for your troubled teen girl. Many military schools for girls won’t enroll girls who have a history of problems. 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, but Lakelnad does. This program specifically helps troubled teenagers -- such progams are typically referred to as therapeutic boarding schools, but Lakeland is not licensed as a therapeutic boarding school, so it is much less costly. The Christian boarding school provides Bible-centered mentoring for at-risk teens, unlike other alternative schools and therapeutic boarding schools schools that do not have a Christian emphasis.
