Our Easy Enrollment Process
The following represents our enrollment process for girls age 13-17 only. Making a decision about enrolling your daughter or family member in a residential treatment program can be difficult and overwhelming, but we’re here to help. We have simplified the application and enrollment process as much as possible for you. If LGA isn’t a good fit for your teen, we’ll tell you about other programs that may work better for you and for her.
Step 1 – Request Information
The first step is to call us at the number above, or fill in our inquiry form. That will register your interest with our Admissions Department.
Step 2 – The Phone Interview
After we receive your contact information, our Admissions Coordinator will call for a phone interview to learn more about the situation. The information gathered identifies the immediate needs of the student and will allow us to make certain that Lakeland Girls Academy can effectively address those needs.
Step 3 – Apply
Once we determine that your daughter would be a good fit for our program, we will email you an online application that you simply complete and submit to us electronically. Upon receiving your application, we will then review for final approval. If you are approved for enrollment, our Admissions Coordinator will get back in touch to set a date for intake and to send along all necessary paperwork.
Sorry, we do not enroll girls who are:
- Medically unstable
- Physically violent or with a criminal record for violence
- Sexual abusers
- Diagnosed with severe psychotic disorders
- Suicidal or have attempted suicide
- With severe physical or psychological issues.
At LGA, we realize that boarding schools can be expensive, and we do our best to be as affordable as possible. Compared to other therapeutic boarding schools, we are many times more affordable, and we can also help provide some options:
Lakeland Girls Academy is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and can provide a tax-deductible receipt for family members, friends, or companies that would like to make a contribution to our scholarship fund. We would be happy to talk with you about this possibility if you have someone that would like to help in this way.
Church or Civic Organization
Sometimes the church or civic organization that a parent belongs to will assist with tuition costs. Discussing your situation with the pastor of your church or president of your group may lead to financial aid.
Lakeland Girls has partnered with Prosper as a potential lender. Working with a national network of specialized lenders, their loan consultants will help you find the most suitable financing option while maintaining the highest levels of confidentiality. Please contact them for more information.
Because we are a faith-based organization and not a clinical treatment facility, insurance does not cover treatment costs. If you are needing coverage, we would be happy to refer you to another program that may offer assistance.
