Dear Beth & Trace Embry,
I want to give you a heartfelt thanks for all you have done for our son. Seventeen months ago he arrived at Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA) as a lost, immature, disrespectful and angry child. Friday night he left SHA as a SAVED, respectful and happy young man. Is he perfect??? No. Far from it.
But we now have the hope and determination needed to keep him on the upward trajectory that you have him going on. With God’s help and guidance I know he will “make it” in life. Seventeen months ago, maintaining hope for him was very difficult to do.
You provided hope to a lost child and showed him the way. The right way. The godly way. I could go on and on and on about the impact you have made on our son and also on our family. In the essence of time, I will simply attach his before and after pictures……..they say it all.
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART for the work you are doing for Christ, for children and for families.
Renewed Hope in North Carolina
Beth Embry and Team – I just wanted to personally thank you for the hard work you and your team put into Parent’s Weekend and everything provided at Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA).
The personal touch that SHA extends is so valuable too. From the cakes to your name cards at the tables – it’s the old fashioned home-made touch that makes a big difference.
I sincerely hope that as SHA grows, you retain that non-corporate, down-to-earth style. The staff, methodologies, and little touches really make SHA stand out WAAAAAY above and beyond any of the other schools I researched. Don’t forget, you have an enthusiastic group of past, present, and future parents out there who will be more than willing to organize a Parent Volunteer group to help SHA retain it’s individuality as you expand in the future. We would all like to help because what you and Trace have started, is really superb and original.
Also – side note – I hope you and Trace and the team are considering a nice pine tree line along the highway there for coverage year around. I’m sure that steep grade will qualify for land erosion risk and you can get free trees from the state and additional tax write-offs potentially. I’m sure you guys have a plan. But again, this is something Parents could get a committee working on also if not.
We’re here to help and we love you all very much! LOL and I still chuckle when I think back on you speeding around in the golf cart with Gramps and the dog in the back! Thank you so much! You’re amazing🙂

Trace and Beth Embry and all of your staff. I would like to thank you for all that you have done for my grandson. It was truly heartwarming to see his smile again. My time spent talking with your staff and talking to him makes me know that he is in the right place. Thank you very much for allowing me to participate in the activities and going out of your way to make me feel comfortable… again Thank you all very much!

Helping families in the healing and restoration process. God’s love is demonstrated in both their leadership and support teams at Shepherds Hill Academy.
We had literally nowhere to turn. We prayed and I researched so many organizations for help for my grandson. I called and talked with Trace Embry and then he called back and talked with my son. Ours was a very unique situation, but Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA) turned out to be exactly the therapy we needed.
The discipline, the responsibility, the spiritual guidance, and the schooling were exactly on target. SHA ministered the entire family. Their program is unique – just like our situation was, but I can truthfully say their intervention in the life of my grandson helped him become a young man to be proud of. Would we do it again – without question.
