Year-Round Boarding School and Program for Girls Who are Struggling
The Columbus Girls Academy is a non-profit therapeutic Christian boarding school for teenage girls struggling with life-controlling problems or destructive attitudes. We offer a disciplined and structured environment that emphasizes character development, spiritual growth and personal responsibility. Our therapeutic program for girls is designed to develop the whole person in four main areas: spiritual, social, academic and physical.
For over 45 years, this Christian boarding school for girls has helped hundreds of girls get back on the right track in life, and learn that they have a higher purpose and calling on this Earth. We surround our students all day long with a Christian environment to help facilitate life change through the witness and guidance of our staff and counselors.
Our therapeutic program entails mentoring and counseling; both individually and in group meetings. Students in the boarding school are challenged daily in their relationships and respect for others as they interact with school and counseling staff and their peers. It is an environment that balances discipline with personal responsibility to create a positive peer culture. Our goal is to help students make positive decisions, not based on mandatory compliance, but rather being the result of a genuine change of heart. Community service, special projects, outings and mission trips also help our students change their focus from self to serving others.
We are a non-public Christian boarding school registered with the State of Alabama Department of Education. Our curriculum is accredited through AdvancED, the parent organization of The North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA), and is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). These organizations ensure that CGA provides the academic standards required for transfer back to the girl's local school or for entrance into colleges and universities.
The 200-acre all girl boarding school is a special place where students and families experience peace and tranquility as they work through the process of changing their motivations and attitudes in life while also restoring relationships. The gorgeous property includes an expansive conference center with overnight rooms for parents, hiking trails, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, a softball field and a huge swimming pool.
