Girls Schools

For girls, Teen Challenge is a holistic therapeutic program – meaning that we are concerned with the body, mind, and spirit of those who come to us for help. We endeavor to help teens become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive.

Teen Challenge Southeast

For nearly 60 years, this Christian boarding school program in the Southeastern United States has helped hundreds of boys and girls get back on the right track in life, and learn that they have a higher purpose and calling on this Earth. Teen Challenge surrounds its students all day long with an environment designed to help facilitate life change through our team’s witness and guidance.

Our help is offered for teens who need counsel both individually and in group meetings and through unique, effective programs like Wilderness and Equine Therapy. Students in the Teen Challenge boarding schools are challenged daily in their relationships and respect for others as they interact with school and program staff and their peers. It is an environment that balances discipline with personal responsibility to create a positive peer culture.

Teen Challenge’s goal is to help students make positive decisions, not based on mandatory compliance but rather as the result of a genuine change of heart. Community service, special projects, outings, and mission trips also help our students change their focus from themselves, to serving others.
