Shepherds Hill Academy Workshops Are a Success

Many parents consider the Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA) workshops a success.

The SHA workshops provide cultural insights for parents. Our goal is to teach parents to prepare their family household for their child’s return home from Shepherds Hill.
This parent explains:

We thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, it was very productive. The workshop we attended was exceptionally well done. The content was a great reminder of how to best function as a family; it helped us identify areas where we are weak and need to make improvements going forward.

Learned to Do Good Instead of Trouble

Before bringing our son to Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA), he was in a hospital, and his behavior was so bad he’d punched his dad in the face.  We actually had to higher a transport company to get him to SHA.

Upon arriving at SHA, our son told the SHA staff that his life goal was to smoke weed and be a stay-at-home grandson and play video games.Shepherds Hill Academy Now, he is a changed kid.  He was promoted to the SHA Next Step program and then graduated high school at SHA.  Thanks to all of you, he is now planning to go to college.

We know he can do anything he wants to do.  While at SHA, he learned how to use his gifts to do good instead of getting into trouble.

Six Months to Maturity

Dear Shepherds Hill Academy Family,

We utilized the SHA Family Coaching prior to sending our son for the residential care. At the end of 2014 our son had alcohol poisoning and was in the hospital. He admitted he needed help and asked to be away from the home environment. Six months later, our son is mature enough now to realize he is not ready to come home yet.  At 17 years old, he’s decided to stay at SHA to follow God’s plan for his life.

Thankful Parents from Texas
