Shepherds Hill Academy is Transforming Lives

See what parents are saying about Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA).

“He is doing well now and is adjusting to being back home. He is even conditioning with the football team at his high school this summer! I never would have thought that he’d even consider playing football, but being at SHA changed him. He is living proof that what you all do there works and that lives are changed. I want you all to know how grateful I am to you. I know how much you make God smile…

You have given us hope for our son’s future. Thank you, again, for all of your hard work and love that you pour out on the SHA students each and every day. You are making a difference and helping families more than you can possibly know.”
-A mother from South Carolina

Graduates Speak Wisdom to Students at Shepherds Hill Academy

Time and again our graduates pay it forward by speaking the wisdom they learned at Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA) to the students currently enrolled.

Sometimes, graduates will speak in our chapel, swing by and pay a visit, or send letters of encouragement.

Recently, our currently enrolled girls received an amazing encouragement from a recent graduate.

“Satan is the master deceiver and how he will wrap himself around your brain until his thoughts become your own and shake your identity. Satan robbed the world blind when he tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden. The part that really got to me (especially for you girls) was the part about the essence of our identity. So our identity is determined by birth. Confused? Let me explain…

“When you are born again, God deposits in us a new nature that wasn’t there before, but is now the core of who we are. So if you have decided to trust Jesus Christ for eternal life, this very life of God is now at the the center of our being. This new life can also be know as an “imperishable seed.” This seed contains what you need to be set free and this is why you are BRAND-NEW if you are in Christ. You are not the same person you were even though you might be doing some of the same things. Still confused as to why? It’s BECAUSE your identity is in your birth, and if you are doing the same things as before it is because the seed has not been allowed to expand in order to dominate your soul. There’s my truth. SHA is a place that pushes away all the weeds so your seed can plant firmly and expand. SHA is weed killer. Just let it happen.”

In Christ’s love,
Recent SHA Graduate

Parent from South Carolina Finds Help for Teen

Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA) has served families from all across the country since 2001. Because of our intentional focus on matters of the heart, parents find the help they need for their teen in crisis.

Parents from South Carolina have found the help their teen needed at Shepherds Hill Academy.

The words “thank you” just don’t seem like enough for all you did for our son, me, and our family. About a year and a half ago we didn’t know where to turn for help. We were in a crisis and thankfully God pointed us to you. When we sent our son to you we had such a peace about it, knowing God had him with people who could help. I just knew that SHA was exactly what our son and our family needed.
