Welcome To Columbus Girl’s Academy
Christian Boarding School Designed for Girls Who are Struggling with Life Controlling Issues
Columbus Girls Academy is a year-round Christian boarding school with a specialty of helping girls ages 12-17 who are struggling with rebellion, social awkwardness, academic failure, respect for authority, or who are self-destructing or exhibiting dangerous behavior. A significant percentage of the girls in our care were adopted as younger children and developed emotional and relational problems in their adolescent years.
We offer an amazing campus and a loving staff in an affordable program that is just for girls. We feature a first-class school, counseling, therapeutic and character-building activities, and spiritual support. We repair behavioral issues and build a stronger future for girls who are responding negatively to adoption, relational discord, peer pressure, or other trauma.
Columbus Girls Academy offers various therapeutic methods to help turn around the lives of girls who come here. These are girls who have been struggling with rebellion or misbehavior, or who are self-destructing. While providing a first-class education and 24/7 care, CGA will be a life-changing experience for your girl.
Every student has the opportunity to achieve a premium education that is well-rounded and fully accredited. CGA is a year-round school, which allows our students to achieve phenomenal progress towards high school completion and beyond. Our partnerships with Alpha Omega Academy and Liberty University Online produce an educational atmosphere that spurs a desire to succeed, which gains momentum and encourages the student to reach their full potential.

"Aside from all the fun and good music, I have been doing a lot of praying, praying that God will fill me with His heart so that I may have His desires and not my own. I was filled with a lot of comfort and hope. I was mesmerized at how much God warms me up and gives me light, just like the fire."
