Students have opportunities to participate in activities they may never have chosen at home. New passions are discovered as students become more well-rounded through participation.
Participation in sports improves self-discipline, self-confidence, and self-esteem. Healthier lifestyle choices become habits that will produce lasting benefits. Many activities encourage teamwork and improve the relational skills necessary for success. Group activities prepare students to consider and respect each other’s needs.
“I really pushed my parents over the edge when I overdosed on pills not once, not twice, but three times with 35 pills. They had enough and did not know where to turn. That’s when they brought me to Lakeland. Two months later, Jesus Christ intervened and said, “Get ready family! I am the Great Physician and I will heal your daughter and bind up her wounds!” God changed me from the inside out that day and has set me free from all the bondage that I was enslaved in.”

We can also help you in your search for therapeutic academies, boarding schools with therapy, faith-based boarding schools or therapeutic 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.
